The VideoLAN Repository will get through some minor changes. Mainly affected are current users of the vlc-beta packages, BUT there is important news for all of you:
The VideoLAN Project moved the VLC Player sources into the future. For this reason, vlc-beta packages as of now will only be built with full capabilities for openSUSE 11.4 and Factory (and future releases).
Currently, on 11.3 I had to drop v4l2 features, as the kernel is considered too old to be supported by the latest VLC snapshots (See this mail thread)
the existing 1.1.x packages are of course not affected, but there are plans to have 1.2 tree to become the ‘main’ tree for VLC! This would be some big news and changes coming down our way! Yay!
