vlc-2.0.0-r3 does not work as expected without vlc-dev
vlc does not work for streaming or looking at a stream unless vlc-dev is installed.
You should be able to reproduce the issue by
- Create a stream this way: http://wiki.alpinelinux.org/wiki/Stream\_a\_DV-camera\_using\_vlc
- Look at the stream you just created
Everything works just fine if ‘vlc-dev’ is installed in both the streamer and the client.
