VLC's Response to being removed EDIT [SOLVED]

Postby malligt on Sun Feb 27, 2011 5:30 pm

Must have been a temporary quirk because vlc is in wheezy as shown on
http://packages.debian.org/wheezy/vlc or with 'rmadison vlc'

To which I replied to the VLC contact:

"Thank you for your prompt reply.

With all respect, I've just tried again to install VLC from LMDE (Linux Mint Debian Edition's synaptic package manager), and I get the following failures:

Depends: vlc-nox but it is not going to be installed
Recommends: vic-plugin-notify but it is not going to be installed
Recommends: vlc-plugin-pulse but it is not going to be installed

I hope this helps you with a fix...."


EDIT...VLC now successfully updates to 1.1.7 in LMDE.

@richyrich

I think you have misunderstood the purpose of my post.

The purpose was to tell VLC that this had happened. I attached the same thread you say "explains it all" when writing to VLC.

I just wanted to "inform" users" and readers of VLC's response.....and my (rather immediate) reply to VLC.

My take on the reply from them was that VLC had no idea of this (removal) problem/issue, and simply dismissed it as a "temporary quirk". If they don't know of a problem, it's hard for them to fix it.

That was my sole purpose here.

Thanks.

But the question here is not on Videolan's side. They provide the source code so someone can package it for Debian (and others).
The "issue" here should be addressed to Debian Multimedia (the maintainers) - although they are aware of it:

If you did the update and want your VLC back again,

add

deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian stable main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org/ stable/updates main contrib non-free

to your /etc/apt/sources list, then

apt update
apt install libva1/stable
apt install vlc

and then wait for the package to be fixed this time instead of tinkering

When I check about:config in FF I see this under the VLC plugin:
VLC Multimedia Plugin (compatible Totem 2.30.2)

File: libtotem-cone-plugin.so
Version:
The Totem 2.30.2 plugin handles video and audio streams.

So from that it appears that it will default to Totem? This morning I listened to a show via an MMS stream and it defaulted to wanting to open totem but I chose 'other' then went to /usr/bin/vlc and selected that, and when I click on the same stream now it defaults to want to open VLC. hth.
