Don't any of the vlc nightly builds work?http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...05#post4963705
Just extract to a folder and you can run vlc from there. No installation needed.
I usually make a shortcut to vlc within the folder.
With that shortcut I edit the target field so it looks like the following.
"J:\\Backup of F\\vlc-win32-last\\vlc-0.8.2-svn-20050109\\vlc.exe" "dshow:// :dshow-vdev="Panasonic MPEG2TS Tape Subunit Device" :dshow-adev="" :dshow-size="" :no-dshow-config "
Bear in mind that the target field must reflect which build you are using.
"dshow:// :dshow-vdev="Panasonic MPEG2TS Tape Subunit Device" :dshow-adev="" :dshow-size="" :no-dshow-config "
is the line I added to what was originally in the target field. Notice the space between what was originally there and the line I added.
I then rename the file to
I then create two shortcuts on my desktop to both the original vlc.exe and the shortcut of it I created in the folder.
If I want to use vlc for viewing files I click on the one with the unmodified field.
If I want to view a stream instantly I just click on the one with the modified field.
Btw, changes to vlc's configuration made within the nightly builds appears to carry over in the registry to any subsequent builds you might use. Ditto that for using the reglar versions that come with their own installers. The settings carry over to the nightlies and vice versa.
