Package: vlc
Version: 0.8.6-svn20061012.debian-5etch1
Severity: important


vlc consistently segfaults when trying to transcode/stream from a v4l device
to an ogg(theora+vorbis) http (or whatever) stream.

It looks a lot like an ancient vlc bug (Trac ticket #486).

The same bug exists in unstable, tested on both i386 and amd64.

You used v4l, which is not in VLC anymore. Therefore I am closing this
