VLC change?

Has anyone worked with the new VLC version 1.1.0 (for Windows) yet? It doesn't appear to be a NSIS installer anymore; at least, I can't find a *.nsi in the downloadable .zip archive.

Any ideas? Sande

Hi Sande,
this is still an NSIS installer.
A short search for the string "NSIS" tells you that.

So, anybody know where the NSIS install file is?

Or does the Package KB advice about modifying vlc.win32.nsi no longer apply?

If it doesn't apply, does anyone have an equivalent customization technique for this new version? Sande

From a posting in the VideoLAN forum, I learned that vlc.win32.nsi was forgotten in version 1.1.0, but will be included in the future. When several people asked if the 1.1.0 file could be downloaded; this was the response:

Note that the file contains line numbers you'll have to edit out. I haven't tried compiling it yet, to know if it is correct or not. Sande

It doesn't compile correctly. It's missing the languages\ subdirectory, and then fails on several lines that start with @. I'm trying to get answers in the VideoLAN forum.
