Anyone used libvlc on Mac?


I’ve been able to simplify the reproduction of the error:

  • Preprocessor Timestamp
  • C++: How to reuse Encrypted Sqlite database in MFC application which is already in iOS
  • Weird behavior of fopen on ios
  • How can I write a 'clamp' / 'clip' / 'bound' macro for returning a value in a given range?
  • Understanding pointers?
  • Curly Braces in Objective-c
  • When trying to build this sample:

    $ cc example.c -arch i386 -lvlc.2 -L/Applications/  -I/Applications/ -o example
    $ ./example 
    dyld: Library not loaded: @loader_path/lib/libvlc.2.dylib
      Referenced from: /Users/francis/src/playground/libvlc/./example

    Original Post

    I am experiencing the following behavior:

    • Create new XCode project (Cocoa or command line tool)
    • Link with libvlc.2.dylib found in /Applications/
    • Run the application
    • => Crashes with stack-trace pointing pointing to __dyld_dyld_fatal_error at the top and __dyld__dyld_start at the bottom.

    What am I doing wrong here? Maybe I need to link with a fresh VLC build, but I haven’t yet succeeded building it on Snow Leopard and the MacPort doesn’t work as well (fails during build phase).

    Can anyone point me in the right direction for getting it to work?

    Check with otool -L if your programm is correctly linked with all your libs.

    relink every dylib with install_name_tools
