Why doesnt the Pi repos have an accelerated (omxil) enabled driver?
I have seen this thread: viewtopic.php?t=195221
However the responses would seem to indicate a varied experience from somewhere between perfect right first time, and the compilation just failing miserably all over the place to the point one gives up. I fell into the latter. I actually am a programmer in C#/Windows/.Net so I can understand the error messages albeit I dont understand the linux ./configure and make system or the filesystem in general - so errors from those related warnings are smoke and mirrors to me.
Has anyone managed to succeffuly compile acclerated VLC on Stretch and if so, what was the procedure from fresh install of Stretch - and can it be done with the Stretch Lite image ??
