*edit*
Ok, here's something a bit better. Now VLC plays DVDs, and has a proper menu icon.

VLC 1.0.0rc4 16Mb
Required patch 2Mb
Skins!!!

The following is kept for anyone interested.
Ok here is the all singing all dancing version of VLC.
VLC0.9.9a (38Mb)
It has been compiled with OpenGL support, visualisation support and everything else support.
It's also 38Mb. I compiled with static libraries and merged any missing libraries.
I suggest caution if uninstalling this PET.
Skins are availiable at: Skins. Some work, some don't..

without any visualisation support.

well it's for playing cd and mp3...goom is very good and played through vlc has the advantage of video acceleration..just one teeny weenie plugin..the rest are naff Very Happy .
The opengl effects are impressive..eg video on a transparent cube for example but bit of a novelty and no speed advantage over Xvideo.

On a general note thanks for making this package. There was an effort to bring the 0.9.x vlc to puppy previously but appeared to have problems with ffmpeg so I will be testing this one out.

regards

Way to go sikpuppy, ummm just one thing, which puppy did you compile this one, I'm using 2.14.1X right now and have a bunch of missing deps, So it would be easier for me to find them, if I knew which puppy release to rip the out of Smile
Thanks

Hey Mike could you get it to play a dvd? I couldn't get it running on 2.14.1x even after I added all the libs

Ok results so far.
Tested on puppy 4.12...

needed .. libiconv.so.2 , libqtcore.so.4 and libqt4gui.so.4
(there are some multimedia ones too like vorbisenc etc if not already present.)

Working...
anything that ffmpeg can handle which means this library is working which has been the main stumbling block .. uses the shared avcodec that 0.8.6h uses. Flv navigation works well.

For dvd I had to drop in the dvdnav and dvdread plugins from an earlier compilation 0.9.2...perhaps newer shared libs are needed.
Worked ok including menus once bodged.

I could not get a network stream to play so far..uncertain about that one.

skins2 plugin is present but seems to have a major problem with most skins...but this seems to be a 0.9.x feature?? Skins maketh a popular player...xine, mplayer and skinned vlc have the edge. Crazy thing is when a skin is used then qt4 or wxwidgets are only needed for menus/preferences..like something simple. would do just fine..this aspect alone accounts for 10 - 15 MB..just my beef.

Ok just some brief feedback there.
Definately a worker offering some functional improvements and an escape from wxwidgets.

regards

mike

Yes, there seems to be a bunch of missing libraries.

Sorry folks, I will post them now (been sick for a few days Razz)

The problem was I had put a lot of extra libraries on my system and it meant I had to use a fresh install of Puppy to figure out what was missing.

I was using Puppy 4.12.

The other thing is that VLC can pull down the missing libraries for compilation (it builds them nicely automagically) but this is only useful for a one off build I think. As in: to be used by me only :S

I have most of the missing libraries, I just need to build a few and will post them shortly. They won't be stripped as much as some would like, but they can be stripped to peoples hearts content once they have them Razz

Ok there's a few here: http://cid-da097326680e08e6.skydrive.live.com/embedrowdetail.aspx/VLC/

One of the problems with compiling for GL support is that the libraries for OpenGL that come with puppy do not come with compatible headers for VLC. I could compile a new copy of Mesa, but that would make VLC enormous (it is fairly big as it is).

As for visualisations, maybe I can recompile it to handle them. I'd like to get this working first Razz

*edit* there is a few PETs here that are compilations: They have CDDB, MPEG2 and GNUTLS in one, so you can either download the individual PETs or just use the biggie for these three.

See first post for a PET that resolves (hopefully) all dependencies.

What about 4...is there a limit before it fails? I am making a large package, it might be ~100Mb is that going to be an issue?

Hmmz, perhaps I should just make it a SFS file, a pet that size might take ages to install anyway Razz
