<b>Important:</b> VideoLAN switched from CVS to <a href="

The anonymous CVS server was kept for some time.
<b>CVS IS NO LONGER SUPPORTED.</b>
</p>
<h2>Basic information</h2>
<p> The anonymous CVS server is called
<code>anoncvs.videolan.org</code>. You can log in as user anonymous,
with an empty password. For instance, to retrieve the <code>vlc</code>
source: </p>
<pre>cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@anoncvs.videolan.org:/var/cvs/videolan login
cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@anoncvs.videolan.org:/var/cvs/videolan -z3 checkout -P vlc</pre>
<p> In case you do not have access to CVS (due to strange corporate policies which resulted in firewalls),
CVS tarball snapshots are available (see below). </p>
<h2>Available modules</h2>
<ul>
<li><b>vlc</b>: VideoLAN Client; </li>
<li><b>vls</b>: VideoLAN Server; </li>
<li><b>vlms</b>: VideoLAN MiniServer; </li>
<li><b>network</b>: network tools (MiniSAPServer, VLAN-Server and VLAN-Bridge). </li>
<li><b>libdvdcss</b>: library for decrypting DVDs, used by VLC and VLS. </li>
<li><b>libdvdplay</b>: library for DVD navigation, used by VLC. </li>
<li><b>libdvbpsi</b>: library for parsing Program Specific Information
from MPEG and DVB streams, used by VLC and VLS. </li>

http://subversion.tigris.org">Subversion</a> repositories. Subversion (SVN) was built
to be like CVS, but without many of it's faults. This could only be done by
breaking backwards compatibility with CVS. It will be a bit painful at first
for some people but will pay of big time in the end. Currently there are scripts
in place that will keep our <a href="cvs.html">old CVS repositories</a> available
to anonymous CVS users. All developers have to use SVN though. If you had a CVS account
for some people but will pay of big time in the end. There used to be scripts
in place that kept our old CVS repositories available to anonymous CVS users,
but these scripts were broken, so they are the CVS repositories are no longer
available. All developers have to use SVN though. If you had a CVS account
before, but no SVN account yet, then mail the <a href="mailto:vlc-devel@videolan.org">
Developer Mailinglist</a>.
