Nice. I have tried it in MacOS but I want it on Linux. Thank you Jeff.

I haven't been seeing many comments as to how VLC 2.0 works.
Oh, speaking of which...will the mozilla-plugin-vlc-2.0 be included?
Posted 01 March 2012 - 04:45 AM
My first impressions: I didn't see mozilla plugin vlc 2.0 in the test repos. (Of course it's important to see that the main player actually works)
While using the player, and I don't have use for any of the features like dvd or blueray because I only have a cd drive. I can verify that it plays music perfectly, the sound quality is awesome. Displays album art. One hiccup is that when I tried to stream a youtube video on it. I'd tried Vlc 2.0 on Puppy linux and It was able to stream the audio from youtube.
I wanted to see if it would actually stream the video on bodhi or just the audio. It didn't stream anything, all that happened was that the window for Vlc started jumping across the screen.
This is not a joke, it was resizing itself. First it went very minimal like a small audio player with no screen, then it went full screen then it took up half the screen and it just kept going through all these little jumps all over the screen. The screen only displayed a green screen with the now playing "video title" but the video wasn't there. Nor was the audio. I'm wondering what could cause such glitchy jumping.
I don't know what else I can do to report bugs on. Hopefully these glitches can be ironed out.

I don't use any of the streaming features so I can't test those - but it does media playback from files AOK. Been using that for the last day without issues.

Yep this seems to be an issue. All I can say it we won't be upgrading VLC till they iron out this issue.
It appears to be an issue with VLC 2.0 - beyond that I'm not seeing any notable features that really make VLC 2.0 a "must have" upgrade from the previous version. For now it seems this one stays in the test repo.

I'd like to know why streaming doesn't glitch like that in puppy linux. It appears like this is a strictly Bodhi problem. Or an Ubuntu one.
Mozilla plugin should be in vlc-data yes - at least according to the upstream packager's notes (I'm just rebuilding this from Debian).
The glitch with youtube must just be from one of our build deps - if you pin down which one let me know.

I barely remember any of the build dependencies. Hopefully someone in this community can help figure this out.
Vlc plugin is not listed in Mozilla so I can't see how it could come installed with VLC. Maybe I have to manually move it into Mozilla's plugin folder, but to do that I'd have to know where VLC keeps all it's plugins.

As stated all over this thread though - numerous issues with this update in general. They all need to get ironed out before Bodhi 1.x.y can get this update into the main repo.
It might just have to be one of those packages that lives in testing until 2.0.0

Аlthough in Debian repo-s found:

They must have updated their packages to include this - it wasn't include in the early builds.
I might look into this again, but as of right now VLC is stuck in testing due to a few glaring issues. Honestly it might just live there till 2.0
