Re: Tutorial: Compile VLC with HW acceleration - Jessie, RPi 2/3

Apologies for taking so long to report on the last attempt. I was dealing with another can of worms. Probably should not have tried to migrate to a Pi Desktop, swap to booting from an onboard mSATA SSD and try to get the latest version of VLC working with Stretch :x Anyway, this may have worked in m...

as my post 6 upper, you need a patch for vlc-2.2.6 compile under stretch. My apologies. I didn't take note of that. I applied those patches and had much greater success for the build. The make and install completed but, after starting VLC, I wasn't able to select 'OpenMAX IL video ouput' because th...

@gkreidl: Of course you're absolutely correct about the keyboard commands. Silly oversight. I should have at least committed 'alt-l-s' to memory before doing a test run ;)

Re: Tutorial: Compile VLC with HW acceleration - Jessie, RPi

Just a note of thanks for this detailed and accurate procedure. I successfully executed all the steps that enabled a smooth, stutter-free, full-screen rendering to HDMI video/audio. This may not seem such a big deal to many of the members in this forum but for an old Windows programmer like me whose...
