INSTALL file for the Maemo version of the VLC media player
Building VLC from the source code
=================================
Building VLC from source code
=============================
If you want to build the maemo version of VLC from the source, you have to install the
Maemo Software Development Kit as indicated in the Maemo Diablo Reference Manual for
Maemo 4.1 that you can find on this page : http://maemo.org/development/documentation/tutorials/
If you want to build the Maemo version of VLC from the source, you have to
install the Maemo Software Development Kit as indicated in the Maemo Diablo
Reference Manual for Maemo 4.1. You can find it from this page:
http://maemo.org/development/documentation/tutorials/
You have to use the ARMEL target (arm) of the Maemo SDK. The X86 target isn't tested.

Installing the correct tools in the scratchbox
==============================================
Installing autotools
====================
When you have a working scratchbox with the Maemo SDK installed, before compiling VLC, you
must install additional tools and libraries.
Once you have a working scratchbox with the Maemo SDK installed and before
compiling VLC, you must install some additional tools and libraries.
To compile, VLC needs the lastest version of automake avaible in the SDK : automake-1.9. To
use it, you must set the environment variable SBOX_DEFAULT_AUTOMAKE to 1.9 :
export SBOX_DEFAULT_AUTOMAKE=1.9
You can put it in the .bashrc file inside the scratchbox.
VLC requires automake 1.9 and autoconf 2.61 (or more recent). As of the Diablo
release, they are not easy to install within the Maemo SDK for Scratchbox.
The easiest solution is to use those from your Linux distribution _outside_
Scratchbox (in your native desktop environment). You will also need the
gettext and libgcrypt development files.
You also need autoconf-2.61 which is *not* avaible in the Maemo SDK. You have to build it and
install it yourself.
Go to the VLC source code directory, e.g.:
cd /scratchbox/users/$(whoami)/home/$(whoami)/vlc
and run:
./bootstrap
Installing correct headers
==========================
For VLC to compile under the Maemo SDK, you must copy the linux/videodev2.h
from your Linux distribution into the Scratchbox.
To build the OMAP Frame Buffer video output module, you also need an up-to-date
asm/arch-omap/omapfb.h (you can find it on google by searching for "omapfb.h").
Additional libraries
====================
You have to install libgcrypt under the scratchbox to build VLC.
Installing additional libraries
===============================
You can also install fribidi, libvorbixidev, libmad and other VLC dependancies that you can find
in the extra repositories of Maemo :
Login to Scratchbox. You can also install fribidi, libvorbixidev, libmad and
other VLC dependencies which you can find in the Maemo extra repositories.
Add these lines to /etc/apt/sources.list (if not alerady done):
deb http://repository.maemo.org/extras/ diablo free
deb-src http://repository.maemo.org/extras/ diablo free
Installing correct headers
==========================
Then run:
apt-get update
For VLC to compile under the Maemo SDK, you must copy the linux/videodev2.h from your Linux
distribution into the scratchbox.
To build the omap frame buffer video output module, you also need an up-to-date
asm/arch-omap/omapfb.h (you can find it on google by searching omapfb.h).
FFmpeg (not necessary)
======
You can also build ffmpeg. For this, you can use Debian source package.
======================
You have to get the ffmpeg-free_0.svn20080206.orig.tar.gz and the Debian diff file
ffmpeg-free_0.svn20080206-8.diff.gz for example. Decompress them and apply the patch.
You should also build FFMPEG. To that end, you can use Debian source package
as is. Get the ffmpeg-free_0.svn20080206.orig.tar.gz and the Debian diff file
ffmpeg-free_0.svn20080206-8.diff.gz for example. Decompress them and apply the
patch.
You have to modify the debian/rules and debian/control files to remove the dependancies
which aren't available in the maemo or maemo extra repositories.
You will need to alter the debian/rules and debian/control files to remove a
few dependencies not available in Maemo.
You might have to change the line 3550 of ffmpeg/libavcodec/dsputil.c from
DECLARE_ALIGNED_8 (uint64_t, aligned_bak[stride]);
to
uint64_t *aligned_bak[stride];
to build ffmpeg into the scratchbox.
to build FFMPEG within Scratchbox.
Configuring
===========
You can do :
./bootstrap && ./configure --disable-qt4 --disable-skins2 --disable-glx --disable-a52 \
--enable-tremor --enable-maemo --enable-omapfb --enable-flac \
--enable-debug
for example.
You can run, for example:
./configure --disable-qt4 --disable-skins2 --disable-glx --disable-a52 \
--enable-tremor --enable-maemo --enable-omapfb --enable-flac \
--enable-debug

=======
VLC doesn't run inside the scratchbox, you must test it directly on a N800/N810 devices.

VLC will not properly run inside the Scratchbox, you must test it directly on
the target device.
