Despite maven being pretty terrible and frustrating at times, it is probably the best build tool out there and it is recommended that you use it for your vlcj applications.
vlcj is available from the Maven Central Repository.
Add the following dependency to the
dependencies section in your project
pom.xml, this will add vlcj and the JNA dependencies to your project.
If you are using maven with Eclipse, and if Eclipse is configured appropriately, this dependency will also pull in the sources and Javadoc for vlcj.
If you are using a non-maven project, or otherwise a project that can not use
maven dependencies, then you must manually add the
vlcj jar file to your
project, along with the
jna-platform jar files that
vlcj depends on.
How you do this depends on how you build your project.
Online Javadoc is available.
You can get everything you need, including sources and Javadoc, by downloading a vlcj distribution package:
