1. Using VLC
......@@ -197,6 +197,14 @@ previous one. VLS version 0.4.0 and later now fixes this problem. If, for
a reason or another, you wish to keep VLS 0.3.3, you can still read those
streams if you launch VLC (0.4.5 or later) with --vls-backwards-compat.
2.16 NO VIDEO!! or NO AUDIO !!
---------------------------
DON'T PANIC! Use the verbose mode of vlc to search the problem, you may
either set the verbosity option in the interface preferences or use
the "-v" command line switch to increase the number of report/error
messages given by vlc. If you are not using a terminal, use the Messages
window in the View menu.
3. Ports and features

Yes. Just use vlc rtp:@<mcast addr>:<local port>.
3.3.4 Does VLC support DVD from all zones?
-----------------------------------------
VLC uses libdvdcss to read all DVD, disregarding their zone. All zones
are supported without any constraint. However, libdvdcss might not be
legal in your country.
3.3.5 How can I take screenshots?
--------------------------------
This is currently unsupported, but will be in a near future. The latest
developments concern recording the video and the audio to a file.
However, under XFree, you may use the "x11" video output to take normal
screen capture of the video displayed by vlc.
4. Legal concerns
4.1 May I use the VideoLAN logo?
......@@ -272,3 +293,19 @@ such as the United States because of a law called the DMCA. If you are

5. Miscellaneous
5.1 How may I help your project?
-------------------------------
You might either contribute time, material, or money. We are also always
needing some translators. You will find all information you need at
<http://videolan.org/contribute.html>.
5.2 Why are your mailing-lists and your website in english?
----------------------------------------------------------
VideoLAN's developers come from all around the world and english is
the only language they can use to communicate together. Although great
care is given to the translation of our softwares in various languages,
maintaining translations of our documentation and website costs too much
time than we can afford.
