Due to the nature of the nightly VLC, the support for it is very limited and low-priority. The plugin is not guaranteed to work correctly or even work at all. If the plugin breaks to build against newer nightly VLC versions, it might not get fixed for quite some time. It’s also quite possible that nightly VLC could have its own bugs that prevent the plugin from working that are out of my control to fix.

Well, enough with disclaimers. I do hope that the plugin works for you and you find it useful.

Whats So Great About VLC Nightly Builds?

Like we said, VideoLAN uses these nightly builds to test out new features. That means you can try out the latest updates to VLC before everyone else. Earlier this year, the group added Chromecast support, but that’s just the latest in a long list of additions.

VideoLAN also used a nightly build to test out new extension capabilities. This made it possible to add special scripts to VLC that pull information from sites like IMDB or Last.fm related to the movie you’re watching or the music you’re listening to.

The first version of VLC’s Android app was available as a nightly build. VideoLAN tested out BluRay support with a nightly build too.

Ubuntu PPA

The nightly builds for Ubuntu are available on Launchpad from the VideoLAN team’s master-daily PPA. Once you have activated the correct repository, you can simply update the VLC (vlc) package.

Those repositories contain a vlc-dbg package. We recommend you install it so you can produce useful backtraces if you need to report a bug.

VLC Git Ebuild for Gentoo

Alexis Ballier maintains Ebuild for the master (vlc-9999.ebuild) Git branch in the Portage tree.

As it is a live ebuild it comes without any keyword so you’ll have to put a ‘**’ entry for it in package.keywords in order to be able to install it and, when appropriate, an entry in package.unmask .
