Description

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
Name: media/vlc
Summary: vlc - multimedia player and streaming server
Category: Applications/Sound and Video
State: Installed
Publisher: localhostoi151a8
Version: 2.1.5
Branch: 0.0.151.1.8
Packaging Date: 10 January 2015 17:37:32
Size: 15.69 MB
FMRI: pkg::20150110T173732Z

VLC reports the following errors on the CLI
$ vlc WD_1978.mp4
VLC media player 2.1.5 Rincewind (revision 2.1.4-49-gdab6cb5)

VLC is able to play the audio only

Hi,

I tried to apply the update

  1. pkg install ,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

We need to provide our own repository with encumbered software. sfe-encumbered has less and less chances to work on Hipster.

x264 libraries are now provided by hipster-encumbered so this can be closed.
