Hipster 2015 x264 libraries
After upgrading to Hipster 2015, I found that vlc installed from the http://sfe.opencsw.org//localhostoi151a8/ repository which previous worked was unable to display video and complained that x264 support was missing.
$ pkg info vlc
Summary: vlc - multimedia player and streaming server
Category: Applications/Sound and Video
Packaging Date: 10 January 2015 17:37:32
Size: 15.69 MB
VLC reports the following errors on the CLI
$ vlc WD_1978.mp4

VLC is able to play the audio only

- Status changed from Closed to Feedback
I tried to apply the update
- pkg install email@example.com,5.11-2014.1.3.2:20141212T070436Z
No updates necessary for this image.
VLC will still play the audio from an mp4 but will not display any video because x264 is missing
