What would be the best way to install VLC 2.0.1 on centos 6.2? Should I try to build it from source?
I'm trying to stream videos/music over my lan from my headless centos server.
ive come really close with vlc and i think the errors i'm getting are due to VLC version 1.1.13
i can access the httpd interface from other devices on the lan and pause/play/ and change the time but i cant get sound or video to stream.
i opened up port 8081 for tcp and udp.
Heres the vlc errors:
$ cvlc --intf http --http-host adell:8081 /home/ryan/video/*.mp4

How do I get the latest version of vlc installed on centos? Maybe theres a repo I overlooked?
