    DASH on VLC Fedora Core 9

    I need to implement DASH with VLC for one of our requirements.

    I have a few queries and will really appreciate if they can be answered..

    1) Do I need to use VLC version 1.2.0 only, or the DASH works with any other version as well?
    2) Is there is a version of VLC which can support DASH on Windows XP?
    3) What flavor and version of Linux should I use? Currently I am on Redhat FC9 i386, will that work?
    4) Following the steps from your website, I have reached to the stage of executing bootstrap script, but on executing it, I get undefined macros errors.

    ================================================== ==================
    [localhost vlc]# ./bootstrap
    ++ dirname ./bootstrap
    + cd .
    + ACLOCAL_ARGS='-I m4 '
    + test -d extras/contrib/build/bin

    + test .Linux = .Darwin
    + pkg-config --version
    + PKGCONFIG=yes
    + export AUTOPOINT
    + test ''

    + autopoint --dry-run --force

    Probably a beta feature (February 2011) of vlc doesnt match so well with a deprecated and ancient linux distribution from 2003.

    Can you try with a fedora 15?

    Hmm, even I thought so...

    Can't change to FC15 as the deliverable is for a client who wishes to use FC9 (as many other softwares are released on it)

    Oops, sorry.
    I somehow read redhat 9.
    fedora core 9 is from 2008.

    Slightly better situation, but same applies.

    I would try to compile that software on a fedora15.
    Chances to succeed are better because
    - libraries are more up to date
    - documentation might apply (in contrast to documentation about getting it to run on an old distribution. Which would be zero )

    If that works, you can say:
    - I got a running version here for an up to date distribution
    - constantly updating is
    * not only best practice
    * but also ensures that bugs and security holes are approached.
    * and that documentation applies
    - making it somehow run on fedora 9 might be possible, but needs xy more time to also compile all dependend libs there
    - more of your time of course translates to higher costs.
