People installing VLC for Windows from source MUST read:

Bootstrapping VLC

If you retrieved VLC from the git server and do not have yet a "configure"
script, please run:


Configuring VLC

A typical way to configure VLC is:


See `./configure --help' for more information.

If you intend to debug stuff, you may want to compile with debugging

   make distclean ; ./configure --enable-debug

We recommend using GCC to build VLC, though some people reported success
with the Intel C compiler (version 8) as well. GCC version 3.3 or higher is
required. On older systems (e.g. FreeBSD 4.x), please select a more recent
version manually by setting the CC and CXX environment variables
appropriately while running the ./configure shell script.

Building VLC

Once configured, run `make' to build VLC.

Installing and running VLC

You can install the VLC and its plugins by typing:

   make install

But you don't need to install it if you don't want to; VLC can be launched
from the current directory as well:


Building packages

To build a Debian package, you need to get the packaging info
   git clone git:// debian
and then
back to top
