View Full Version : [all variants] FFMPEG & VLC w/ MP3 support.

How come we can get deb package of FFMPEG with MP3 support but not VLC? I understand the whole MP3 issues behind what is considered free and what isn't, but is it because FFMPEG and VLC deb's are maintained by different groups?

I have yet to find a good how-to on compiling vlc w/ mp3 support. Currently trying to compile the latest on Hardy and then onto a Debian server with *GASP* mp3 support. Not ideal, but situations require it.
