Various Multimedia Packages for Slackware 13.1 Rebuilt and Upgraded

Some of the multimedia packages haven’t been updated in quite some time. Today I’ve upgraded a few of the core packages such as x264, ffmpeg, and mplayer, and rebuilt some of the others that depended on those.

x264 – upgraded
ffmpeg – upgraded
libquicktime – rebuilt
wxsvg – upgraded to 1.0.7
DVDStyler – rebuilt
mplayer – upgraded
gst-plugins-ugly – upgraded to 0.10.16
avidemux – rebuilt
vlc – upgraded to 1.1.4 (VLC won’t support libbluray until 1.2.0)

gpac – I’ll have to build an SVN version of this, as the old 0.4.5 is no longer available for download. The current package will be broken until I get around to building a development version.

    Thanks. Admittedly I didn’t look very hard for the 0.4.5 sources. ;)

    Considering the age of that version, building from SVN probably isn’t a bad idea. I should have that up soon.

    OK, a new GPAC package is now available. It is built from the latest subversion revision at the time of this writing, r2116.

    thanks mike, I’ll update it too: you got it right, had a look at their homepage and 0.4.5 is deprecated. ;)

    I had to make a small patch in order for the Subversion sources to build correctly:

    Normally I’d post the contents of such a small patch here rather than link to it, but it adds a missing tab character to the configure script. That may not translate well from a copy ‘n paste.
