Howto build VLC 1.0.0-git in Ubuntu in less than 5 commands.

Since building VLC is easier and easier now, I am compelled to improve my HOWTOS. Here is one for Ubuntu, that can easily adapt to Debian.

This is not a complete and detailed post, but just a summary. If you need more details, take the Build on Intrepid HOWTO.

Get all you need

sudo apt-get build-dep vlc && sudo apt-get install libtool build-essential automake1.10 git-core

Get the source

git clone git://


cd vlc && ./bootstrap

mkdir build && cd build && ../configure --disable-nls --enable-qt4
