Thanks Ahmed!

I've build Ahmed's package in my PPA [1]. I was hoping it would resolve LP #342332 [2] (not relevant for this bug, but unfortunately it didn't). For those who are interested, the buildlogs of the build can be found here: amd64 [3], lpia [4], i386 [5].

For those willing to test the package Ahmed provided, please follow instructions on how to enable my PPA [6].

In my experience, the best practice for VLC is to track its upstream releases. I have tried out petski's PPA builds through my media library and can note no regressions on my end. With that said, I will sponsor it for upload.

I uploaded Ahmed's debdiff into Jaunty with two slight changes:

(1) Preserved the MOTU maintainer field from the previous Jaunty. whenever we make changes to packages, we'd like the maintainer to point to the Ubuntu developers, not Debian developers.

(2) Added a LP: #356310 reference to this bug ticket in the changelog entry.

Thanks for your contribution to Ubuntu!

Strange to see that video is outside main window in official 0.9.9a version, but it wasn't in ppa version.

See bug 360234 :/
