Re: good work
Ran into a little issue with a buffer overflow problem, but they have the solution on this page if anyone else runs into it
It's just their homepage basically, but was fixed December of last year.

Glad to read this.

Just a note: the (numerous) links at the beginning of each HTML page can clutter the reading. They could perhaps be moved to the end or easily skipped using a "Go to content" link.

Re: [install] Error 127
Your environmental variable is not set. First set the env where your ldconfig is located, then compile it.

I had a video sent from a client and nothing would open it - including VLC. This worked like a charm.
