AFAIK those are not the problem.

The latest packman vlc release is not bad considering that libcaca makes
some trouble and has to be disabled (--disable-caca) for compiling and
that it still doesn't stream xvid over the network. No video, sound
only. :-(

However vlc-0.8.6f-0.pm.1.src.rpm eats a52dec-0.7.5-cvs package with
djbfft enabled w/o any probs and that's cool. :-)

Btw latest videolan vlc binary works well with packmans
ffmpeg-0.4.9-10.pm.svn20080316 and libffmpeg0-0.4.9-10.pm.svn20080316
I haven't tested the current ffmpeg from packman.
