Agent Smith,You're right
. I looked in testing section earlier and could have sworn it wasn't there. Just looked again, and there is
an svlc version 2.0.1 in testing. So, what you originally recommended is
an option for raed. If it's working, that is. I installed the 2.0.1 version. Noticed that desktop-file-utils was listed as a dependency. There was an update available for desktop-file-utils, but it was not marked to be included with the svlc package. I installed the svlc package, then upgraded the desktop-file-utils package. Tried starting svlc from a terminal:svlc -vv
Got a long string of debugging info, so I'll start a thread in testing section of forum.
EDIT: Testing section post is here
