It's probably a bit late for F17, as F19 is almost out the door (!), but I now
have a specfile merging and cleaning the bits from Fedora and RPM Fusion for
xine-lib 1.2.3. It's also adding support for VAAPI and VDPAU. 2 patches to allow
building VAAPI got pushed upstream along the way.
I'm attaching a preliminary version to this mail. It still need a bit of
cleaning though. Given the changes involved, I think it might be a good idea to
I would like a update bug open on our bugzilla about this (if not done already)
I would like a preliminary agreement that the fedora package will be removed.
Specially as not alll possibilities might be done in order for xine-lib to stay
in fedora. (such as bundling a special version of libavformat or else in
xine-lib fedora, as soon as it's not libavcodec)
Here's the bug : https://bugzilla.rpmfusion.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2857
