Does anyone have a newer version of VLC running successfully on their Octane. I tried the binary version 7.01, got dvd pictures but no sound.

There's a brand spanking new version of mplayer that should do what you want... except playing encrypted dvds, which can't be one on irix so far.

Hm... yeah, i always missed VLC on IRIX. It's such a nice player. Plays anything you throw at it. But hey, it's out-of-date on Solaris too, I think I'm running it at 0.7.4 here or something, works, but could do with an update...

The source is freely available, anyone want to give it a shot for IRIX?

I suppose it's down to personal taste. I use both. If one won't play it, usually the other will...

One nice thing about VLC is that it's really modularized. You can stream from a DVD to the network across the internet to annother system to the disk while you re-encode to send it back out the network. Really it's a really nice video transcoder thats not limited to file playback. But as was mentioned, its build process could be used to frighten small children.
