Compile with libvlc issues

Post by chaoticmachinery » Mon Jun 16, 2014 12:29 am


I am trying to compile 1.27 and use the VLC libraries. Whenever I run the ./configure I keep getting the following message:
checking for libvlc_new in -lvlc... no
configure: WARNING: libvlc.a may be required for streaming

I download and compiled the latest version of VLC. Currently it is install in /usr/local.

Any pointers on getting this to work would be appreciated.

Have you tried using the new cmake instructions instead? I just did this last week (recompiled for vlc support) and had no issues. Details are in the INSTALL file.
