VLC media player for Linux and friends Troubleshooting • Recommended USE flags for installation on Gentoo

The page https://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-gentoo.html seems to be outdated. A couple of use flags which are recommended do not exist anymore. It would be great if a developer who actually knows the effect of each use flag could update that list. I assume that simply deleting all non-existing use flags is not sufficient. Probably some new use flags which did no exist when that page was written must be added, too.

Here is a list of use flags which are not supported anymore:

  • aac – Maybe replaced by faad? Supported by media-plugins/gst-plugins-meta.
  • cdda – Supported by media-plugins/gst-plugins-meta.
  • cdio – Supported by media-video/ffmpeg.
  • freetype
  • gnutls- Supported by media-video/ffmpeg.
  • httpd
  • oggvorbis
  • stream
  • svga
  • vcd – Supported by media-plugins/gst-plugins-meta.
  • vlm
  • wxwindows
  • xv
