I can't seem to find a .deb or ppa to get vlc 1.1 on karmic. the korn ppa only works for lynx and maverick. Am I finally gonna have to break down and install this from source?

No one? Compiling this from source is harder than I thought. Maybe I'll just upgrade to maverick.

I'm using VLC v1.0.5 with Karmic.
What is the advantage with v1.1 ? What's new?

It's not easy using apt-get!
Enable medibuntu repository

sudo wget --output-document=/etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/$(lsb_release -cs).list && sudo apt-get --quiet update && sudo apt-get --yes --quiet --allow-unauthenticated install medibuntu-keyring && sudo apt-get --quiet update The above is from the site https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Medibuntu. I found Brasero interfering, so I purged it
sudo apt-get purge brasero. Update
sudo apt-get update Then I build dependencies around that which I want
sudo apt-get build-dep dvdcss && sudo apt-get -f install dvdcss NOTE: one may have to use "dvdcss2" in place of the simple dvdcss. Then, install vlc
sudo apt-get build-dep vlc && sudo apt-get -f install vlcIn addition, I find aptitude more to my liking for doing upgrades, so if you cannot, apter first updating, do this
sudo aptitude safe-upgrade, then get it with the apt-get install command.

Hope this proves useful to you.

The major feature that I need is gpu decoding for HD video. I'm using smplayer til I can get this installed.

Thanks for trying but medibuntu doesn't have the latest vlc (or any vlc). That just installed vlc 1.0.2 which is the default version for karmic.

It's actually not that hard to build once you've done, actually just finished a 1.1.1 build to test a patch to correct vp8 decoding.

I could point you to a how-to, but you'd need to make some adjustments in the method and/or use as a basis.

Are you on a 32 or 64 bit install? (makes a bit of diff.

================================================== ==================

Otherwise - there is a ppa with a vaapi enabled vlc 1.1 but it's a little old - 3/24, though it may work for you.

Keep in mind that it will install new ffmpeg shared libs, some karmic apps will break though he does provide some replacements.

(if using, and gtreamer apps matter I'd first enable this ppa and update the gstreamer libs and plugins, then use the above ppa (and don't use his gstreamer ffmpeg plugin

https://launchpad.net/~gstreamer-developers/+archive/ppa/+packages


As far as maverick - the vlc 1.1.0 build does not have vaapi enabled, you'll have to build or ppa's will certainly have once maverick releases

small note - ymmv - I find vaapi to be nowhere as good as vdpau in mplayer though that certainly could be different depending on hardware one has

Looks like some pretty impressive changes:

Taking a closer look at Andrew's guide I see he's updated the ffmpeg source inb. with the newer amd_64 patch so you could use that guide as is for 1.1.1 or 1.1.0 (almost..
You'd want to substitute the source from the 1.2 git to 1.1.0 or 1.1.1, install libva libs and headers, and for taglib (libtag - 3 packages) the 1.6.3 source should work - available in lucid-proposed or default in maverick. (or can be statically built and linked as like ffmpeg

http://nightlies.videolan.org/build/source/?C=M;O=D
Look at 'latest', if latest is 1.2 then look at first listed 'branch' for 1.1.1,
1.1.0 is on main vlc page (http://www.videolan.org/vlc/) under "You can also directly get the.."
================================================== ===========

If a newer than 4/28 ffmpeg source is desired for 32 bit just use it instead of source in guide, for 64 bit the current patch should still work


Patch for amd_64 - first one listed - applt to ffmpeg source before compiling

(--enable-libfaad needs to be removed from ffmpeg configure for recent ffmpeg sources)

Is there a point to your post relevant to this thread?

LOL. This is why I like rolling-release distros. With old Ubuntu versions, you can build stuff from source, but then you find you need an updated version of this dependency and that dependency. Before you know it, it would have been quicker/easier just to upgrade to the latest version...

Hi
The Windows version of VLC 1.1.0 runs with Wine in Ubuntu Karmic. :D
