2.11. Compilation Options

There are a few options that you can set when running the configure script, which are not related to modules .

You can have a look at these options by typing :

% ./configure --help

You can for example control all the installation directories, the system for which you want to build VLC for (if not guessed correctly),...

You can also choose to enable or disable some optimizations.

2.11.1. --disable-plugins

If you select this option, no plugins will be enabled. This is definitely not recommended, as you would get a very poor VLC, and should only be used for testing purposes .
