Raspberry Pi video continued

5 11 2012

I have come into some recent insight in regard to what this project entails.  Through conversing with Chris Tyler, I have come to understand a little more of what direction this project is to be going.


I was thinking of the VLC package for this as I find the media player to be great in terms of format/codec support.  VLC is currently supported on Fedora 14 and earlier, including Rawhide (the development version for fedora).


The VLC package for fedora 11 through 14 is currently available through RPM fusion for the X86, X86-64, PPC and PPC64 architectures.

The process to install this package is as follows:

  • su –
  • rpm -ivh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpmrpm -ivh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm
  • yum install vlc
  • yum install mozilla-vlc (optional)

What I am hoping to accomplish at this point is to repackage or patch the VLC source code to include support for Raspberry Pi.
