Different revisions of VLC

Slackware packages by alienBOB (Eric Hameleers)

32-bit and 64-bit Slackware packages (SlackBuild script included) for official VLC source releases are available from http://www.slackware.com/~alien/slackbuilds/vlc/. These packages do not contain codecs that are suffering from patent or copyright issues. If you need MP3/AAC encoding support, a full-featured version can be downloaded from this non-US mirror:
http://slackware.org.uk/people/alien/re ... uilds/vlc/.

Alien's VLC packages have no dependency on additional packages (except for libdvdcss if you want to play DVD's)

Instructions for building a package from source are available on the VideoLAN Wiki

Well i've just learnt something new , i didn't realize that you got a different revision depending on where it is downloaded.

Might be common knowledge but i though i'd post as a heads up.
