Well damn its Tahl! What's up bud, been awhile. Yah I know what you mean ... mkv still ain't all that amazing, lol, but its getting better. Why I have decent hopes for it becoming something to contend with once its polished. Even now its viable for a good portion of media, by no means the best or close, but viable non the less. The thing I love about vlc is that its so responsive to performance and functionality boosts when you compile it yourself and geared to your specs/needs. Just doing some localized lib environments on the alpha build and up have netted a fair bit over a blanket compile, same can be said for cpu and graphics and modules, etc.... And that's alpha, so I'm def interested to see finished if that level keeps up and stays true to big brother.
Also your right, I don't believe there was instructions when you first posted. Lets be fair tho, your stuff is what peeps make em out of in the first place, haha. Tho as always, I read your post and it makes a lot more sense (read: smarter* lmao) then how I went about setting everything up for all my builds.... but then again, that's usually the case (I tend to go for the "fit the howitzer in the triangle hole" approach ... lmao. Hence why I read your posts regardless of what my project-de-jour is lol).
Razor - actually man, I ain't sure. I kind of sheepishly have to admit that I haven't really looked into it. Just keep messing around with new versions and changing compile routes/configs. I'd venture to say that the private betas will more than likely be pretty good. Vlc always seemed to have a pretty big and good dev and 'tinkerer' following, so I bet they are working some voodoo. That said, I don't know when/if/how bout that tho.
I'm so oblivious that I hadn't even notice that they had writeups till a couple days ago.... lol. I'm about as observant as Mr. Magoo in a circus fun house, when he's drunk and blind folded, most of the time lol. If I hear/see tho I'll let you know! Besides I might need to be sending you a pm or email in another day or two depending on how another idear/project shapes up.... so I'll see what I can see before then for you.
