Got Xine-Lib 1.2.1 working fine with VDPAU support enabled; Getting very low CPU usage (<5%) on an Atom / ION based board playing MP4 and silky-smooth playback. Very impressed!


Now that I’ve got it working with Xine-UI, I’m trying to use it with our in-house media player that previously worked with earlier Xine libraries (1.1.19 and below).


The error message I’m getting from the player is “error while loading shared libraries: libxine.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory”. The build of Xine-Lib has /usr/lib/libxine.so.2.1.0 and two links (libxine.so and libxine.so.2) but no libxine.so.1.


Question is, how do I build my code to reference the correct library (.so.2, not .so.1)?

Or is it simply sufficient to create a link to the correct library?


I’m fairly new to the Linux game, so any help or advice would be gratefully received here!


Kind Regards,
