[maemo-users] [maemo-users] extending 770 video player

I have been successful at cross compiling VLC for the N770.  Though
its not for the faint of heart.  Shortly I will post some instructions
on how to do this, or maybe I will redo it for Maemo 2.0... .  There
is someone that has some instructions for cross compiling VLC 0.7 I
believe here:


Then you can easily take the plung into 0.8.4a ;-)

As well if you search the mailing lists people have had success with
mplayer using the Zaurus packages.

You can even stream to mplayer using something like this.
Assuming you have VLC streaming some video file on another machine to
the location

/var/lib/install/usr/bin/wget -O -
| mplayer -cache 8192 -

Sorry I could elaborate further on any of these since I am getting
ready for a presentation to a local LUG that I attend.  The
presentation will be on the 770 of course... ;-)
