Bug Description

Please backport vlc 2.1.1-1 (universe) from trusty to saucy.

Reason for the backport:
========================
The whole lot of reasons including hardware accelerated decode.
See http://www.videolan.org/vlc/releases/2.1.2.html

Testing:
========
Mark off items in the checklist [X] as you test them, but please leave the checklist so that backporters can quickly evaluate the state of testing.

You can test-build the backport in your PPA with backportpackage:
$ backportpackage -u ppa:<lp username>/<ppa name> -s trusty -d saucy vlc

* saucy:
[x] Package builds without modification
[ ] vlc-dbg installs cleanly and runs
[ ] vlc-plugin-notify installs cleanly and runs
[ ] vlc-plugin-pulse installs cleanly and runs
[ ] vlc-plugin-svg installs cleanly and runs

[ ] vlc-nox installs cleanly and runs
[ ] vlc-plugin-sdl installs cleanly and runs

Reverse dependencies:
=====================
The following reverse-dependencies need to be tested against the new version of vlc. For reverse-build-dependencies (-Indep), please test that the package still builds against the new vlc. For reverse-dependencies, please test that the version of the package currently in the release still works with the new vlc installed. Reverse- Recommends, Suggests, and Enhances don't need to be tested, and are listed for completeness-sake.

I have a backport in *ppa:dirk-computer42/c42-backport* for saucy.

This backport needs also a backported libpostproc due to the libav
backport in this ppa.

The precise backport is currently failing on an unsatisfied (and not
well defined) dependency to samba:

    checking for SMBCLIENT... no configure: error: Library smbclient needed for smbclient was not found

Hi H.-Dirk,

Could you update your VLC saucy backport to latest 2.1.2-2 version, which is currently in Ubuntu Trusty?

Btw, VLC 2.1.2 is already backported to 12.04 "Precise", see:
