I think it has value as it's the only version that has x264 and
Video4Linux support. I must admit, I'd forgotten about it and assumed it
was still Just Working. I'll see if I can find time to update/fix it.
In the long term, AccessGrid 3 is probably the
way to go (http://www.accessgrid.org/), but we don't have it yet.
Has not built in ages (does not like current or anything like current
ffmpeg) and is an ancient version; there are three newer versions of
vlc in pkgsrc. There does not appear to be anything using it any more,
so it's probably time for it to go.
I use this as it is the last WxWidgets, non-Qt version available and I
find it useful for embedded projects. I admit I keep an old ffmpeg around
to build it with.
