[vlc-devel] The --vout options has been disabled on Windows

All I know is that I used to be able to pass a list of video output options I wanted and the order I wanted them in. For example:


This would then use opengl if it was supported and direct3d if not. However, with the latest build, it does not seem to be reading the vout options that I send. 

If this is the way it will be going forward, then perhaps I will need to maintain my own compiled version as this feature is critical for us.

Best Regards,

I´m not sure what you are trying to say.

LibVLC controls the vout variable to ensure that the candidate video output plugins match the requested render target selected by the application (X11, custom callbacks, etc).

The X11 implementation seems actually correct. The Win32 one is so so.
