Also, regarding this particular point; I believe that has been the case so
But I've also understood that future releases might be made with my llvm
based toolchain instead (https://github.com/mstorsjo/llvm-mingw/). I
currently use UCRT as the default there, but we've discussed that any real
release of VLC with this toolchain would need to be made with msvcrt.
FYI Hugo and Konstantin, I recently added a dockerfile option for
building toolchain docker images with a different one, see
By adding --build-arg DEFAULT_CRT=msvcrt to the docker build, you can
build a differently configured toolchain docker image.
