If you cannot play youtube URLs in VLC-GTK 2.5, but you are using a VLC package with lua enabled, you might need this fix, which fixes the latest updates to youtube (as of end of Sept 2012) : http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=655573#655573

VLC-GTK updated to 2.5.2 - see main post for download.

Changelog:

Code:
- new 'Capture' tab, can capture and transcode File, DVD, Screen
- can only capture and transcode to file at the moment (not URLs)


NOTE: there's a bug, you need to return to the main GUI and click the 'Stop Playback' button,
in order to actually stop the capturing/transcoding. The fix should be added around line 750, if anyone knows how.

VLC-GTK updated to 2.5.4 - see main post for download.

Changelog:

- double fixed DVD ripping, works nice
- added many more options to Capture tab
- other fixes related to capture settings

EDIT: re-uploaded, more fixes

- fixed DIV1, DIV2, DIV2 vcodec,
- fixed ac3, aac, acodec

TO DO

Still some issues with remembering some of the Capture settings,
they may appear blank after running a capture or playback cmd...
Note, the settings will only appear blank if you chose 'SAME'...
The fix will be at the end of the execute() func, if anyone cares..

Also, getting working audio in transcoding files seems tricky...
I'm probably doing it wrong, not really an expert on VLC!

EDIT: above problems solved in 2.5.5

@scottman - linux is pretty good about caching the symbols from your shared libraries in order to speed up future uses. This is great when your shared libraries and binaries do not change, but if they do then you can get a mismatch that makes a broken new package _appear_ to work because an old symbol is still cached (an example would be downgrading libflashplayer from v9 to v7 - some flv stuff will work until you reboot or restart X) or the converse situation where a cached external symbol mismatches with the new internal ones and fails to load those particular functions. You also mentioned something about not being able to kill some process. I haven't tracked it back down, but typically it goes like: process args & PID_of_PROCESS=$! ... kill $PID_of_PROCESS (you may need to export the variable depending on where it is used)

Sorry Techno, but I don't know what I should do with this info...
Is VLC-GTK not actually working at all or something?? Confused

I don't plan to translate VLC-GTK. But if anyone wants to do this, they can.

I must have gone back a few pages or something. I swore someone had a problem with upgrading vlc and it not working until reboot (or was it only working until reboot)... can't find it now though
