VLC 2.1.0-git Rincewind crashes when loading ANY video

Postby venom104 on Mon May 07, 2012 10:03 pm

Here is my story. I had to switch to OSS4 because I had some major issues with ALSA. The default VLC installation on Linux Mint Debian Edition does NOT have support for OSS.

I had to compile VLC with support for OSS, I followed the instructions here http://www.andrews-corner.org/vlc.html#codecs

So anyway, I compiled it, and installed it, the problem is it works FINE for any music file, but if I try and load any type of video, I get a segmentation fualt...this is the output of vlc -vv

Re: VLC 2.1.0-git Rincewind crashes when loading ANY video

Postby venom104 on Fri May 11, 2012 4:41 pm

if I change the output to "simple DirectMedia Layer video output" it works fine, but it opens a separate window to play the video...any ideas on how to fix either problem?

Re: VLC 2.1.0-git Rincewind crashes when loading ANY video

Postby krysti on Tue Dec 11, 2012 10:57 pm

I've been able to get this to work with playing video and v4l2 capture card viewing.

I'll just give you my source and how I modified the information.

Went here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CompileVLC

Did everything as listed up to the VLC build

did this instead:
Code: Select all
cd $HOME/vlc_build && \
git clone git://git.videolan.org/vlc.git --depth 1 && \
cd $HOME/vlc_build/vlc && \
if [ ! "$(uname -m)" = "x86_64" ]; then
 ARCHOPTS="--enable-loader"
else
ARCHOPTS=""
fi && \
./bootstrap && \
CPPFLAGS="-I$HOME/vlc_build/vlcdeps/usr/include " \
LDFLAGS="-L$HOME/vlc_build/vlcdeps/usr/lib" \
PKG_CONFIG_PATH="$HOME/vlc_build/vlcdeps/usr/lib/pkgconfig" \
./configure --build=x86_64-linux-gnu $ARCHOPTS --prefix=/usr/local/vlc-git --enable-a52 --enable-aa --enable-bluray --enable-bonjour --enable-caca --enable-dbus --enable-dca --enable-dirac --enable-directfb --enable-dvbpsi --enable-dvdnav --enable-faad --enable-flac --enable-fluidsynth --enable-freetype --enable-fribidi --enable-gnutls --enable-jack --enable-kate --enable-libass --enable-libmpeg2 --enable-libproxy --enable-libxml2 --enable-lirc --enable-live555 --enable-mad --enable-mkv --enable-mod --enable-mpc --enable-mtp --enable-mux_ogg --enable-ncurses --enable-notify  --enable-pulse --enable-qt4 --enable-realrtsp --enable-samplerate --enable-schroedinger --enable-sdl --enable-shout --enable-skins2 --enable-smb --enable-speex --enable-svg --enable-taglib --enable-theora --enable-twolame --enable-upnp --enable-vcd --enable-vcdx --enable-vorbis --enable-x264 --enable-zvbi --with-kde-solid=/usr/share/kde4/apps/solid/actions/ --disable-dxva2 --disable-gnomevfs --disable-goom --disable-portaudio --disable-projectm --disable-sqlite --disable-telx --enable-alsa --enable-atmo --enable-dc1394 --enable-dv --enable-fbosd --enable-libva --enable-linsys --enable-omxil --enable-pvr --enable-udev --enable-v4l2 --enable-crystalhd --enable-mmx --enable-sse --disable-neon --disable-altivec --enable-realrtsp  --enable-merge-ffmpeg --enable-vcdx --enable-ncurses --disable-speex && \

mkdir -vp doc-pak && \
cp -v AUTHORS COPYING INSTALL NEWS README THANKS doc-pak && \
sudo checkinstall --pakdir "$HOME/vlc_build" --backup=no --deldoc=yes --pkgname vlc \
--pkgversion "2.1.0-git-$(date +%Y%m%d)-$(git show --abbrev-commit \
| grep '^commit' | cut -f2 -d " ")" --fstrans=no \
--deldesc=yes --delspec=yes --default && \
make distclean && sudo ldconfig


Basically what I did was look at the ./configure used in the Ubuntu repository of VLC and applied it to the 2.1.0-git build where needed. What I did find out so far is the streaming is giving me problems, in particularly the "gather" parameter which allows you to basically make streaming useful by not crashing or stopping the stream when a new file picks up or a new file format gets in there. So that's the major fault I'm having right now. My settings for VLC work fine in 2.0.3 Twoflower, but the issues are as I've said in 2.1.0-git. Working on it.
