trying vlc-warp build and other warping on Macbook

The vlc-warp code, when directly tried a build on Linux Mint 18.1 running on an i7 Macbook Pro, gave the error that
configure: error: libavcodec versions 56 and later are not supported yet.

When compiling on a Live DVD of Ubuntu 12.04, compiles OK. But that build will not run on the Linux Mint 18.1 with accelerated graphics. And the Live DVD will not boot with accelerated graphics! So, as of now, am pausing these efforts.

Trying the recommended way to compile on Mac OS - that needs the latest version of Xcode, and our Mac is running 10.8 Snow Leopard.

Tried the Quartz Composer patch from Paul Bourke - that also had some version compatibility issues, I guess, did not work on first few attempts.

Then directly tried the compiled warp-player from Paul Bourke - that itself was skipping frames when trying to warp and play a 50 Mbps 2K fulldome movie. So, pausing these efforts to make a realtime warping player work on this machine.
