Hello colleagues ;],

I updated VLC but now I have problem to play any videos. If I try to run some video I see this error message:
Code:

vlc does not support the audio or video format mp4v. Unfortunately there is no way for you to fix this.


I have used this USE flags for VLC and FFMPEG:
Code:

VLC
X a52 aac alsa dbus directfb dts dvd elibc_glibc ffmpeg flac gcrypt id3tag kde live mmx mp3 mpeg musepack ncurses nsplugin opengl qt4 rtsp skins sse stream svg theora truetype win32codecs x264 xcb xosd xv -aalib -altivec -atmo -avahi -bidi -cdda -cddb -dc1394 -debug -dirac -dvb -fbcon -fluidsynth -fontconfig -ggi -gme -gnome -gnutls -httpd -ieee1394 -jack -kate -libass -libcaca -libnotify -libproxy -libtiger -libv4l -libv4l2 -lirc -lua -matroska -modplug -mtp -ogg -optimisememory -oss -png -projectm -pulseaudio -pvr -remoteosd -run-as-root -samba -schroedinger -sdl -sdl-image -shine -shout -speex -sqlite -svga -taglib -twolame -udev -upnp -v4l -v4l2 -vaapi -vcdx -vlm -vorbis -wma-fixed -xml -zvbi) 

FFMPEG:

Next I tried this command - vlc --reset-plugins-cache --reset-config - but it didn't help.

Could some smart head advice to me what I have bad? :]


Thx,

waldauf

in vlc -> extras -> plugins&exts you can search for and find it (after it's installed).
GOOD LUCK!

I checked if I have this library installed and I had. I recompiled VLC many times but it didn't work. Sow yesterday I recompiled media-libs/libmp4v2 too and VLC again and now it works. I don't know where was problem because I use revdep-rebuild which didn't help. So important thing is that now it is working alright :].

Thx for your help DawgG ;].
