VLC 3.0.2, a bugfix release backported from Debian Sid, is now in the test repository.

I'd like to get this version moved to main, so would like to see if it works for testers now. Thanks!

It installs, and plays MP4, MOV, FLV, MPG and MKV files properly.

Pbuilder? You compiled it yourself? :confused:

Or did you mean package-installer?

The other updated libraries that would need to go to main with it would be libplacebo, libarrib24, and libvulkan1.

Quick test reply: Installed with MXPI testing repo. .. some issues:

1st trial: selcting vlc 3.0.2 -> installation appears to have be done ok.
Won't start. Cli-error messages-> mentioning still some vlc 2.2x related errors.
... apt policy still show some libvlc* 2.2 to be installed

2nd trial: apt apt-get purge vlc* libvlc* and than selecting all (non-dbg) vlc and libvlc 3.0.2 from within MXPI.
ok VLC 3.0.2 comes up playing streams, mp4 etc.
Video/sound ok! But moving the cursor out/into windows during playing show some flickering /tearing artefact's, which not have been observed in vlc 2.2x
Sorry if that is a too short test-reply..

Ahh, I see about pbuilder. That's the program I use to build most packages, which it does in an isolated environment, and VLC records the user account and machine name where it was built--in this case "pbuilder@mx1".

I think that 3.X defaults to using the GL video output instead of the xv output like the 2.X versions. Does changing it back to xv make any difference in the flickering?

Actually the default VideoOutput is set to "Automatic", which explains itself as to "auto selecting the best available video output",
and is set within the ~/.config/vlc/vlcrc as vout=any.
Changing within the prefernces menu from from "Automatic" to "XVideo outout (XCB)", which shows up as vout=xcb_xv within ~/.config/vlc/vlcrc
the flickering is gone. :number1:
And I do now enjoy watching within VLC 3.0.2 'Vetinari' without any visual artefact's dolphin_oracle's highly recommended "SSH Conduit-secure shell remote access" video (which I'll go and need to compare to antiX' 1-to-1-assistance-antix, as those tools are extremely usefull and urgently needed for remote helping folks)!!
So Yes! Thanks! Well done! :turtle:

Debian has added 3.0.2 as a security update to Stretch, so everyone will get upgraded now. I can't see any reason to have our 3.0.2 in the test repo now.
