I'v a related issue: I'm currently unable to play video using phonon-backend-
vlc. I got vlc-nox installed as a dep of the phonon-backend and IMO, this 
library issue is the reason why I can't play videos.

I don't have vlc installed (I know it's a recommend of the phonon backend), 
because I would like to go the phonon way and not have the full VLC GUI to be 
able to play video in another phonon video player.

Would there be any workaround for this issue or could you backport the 2.1 VLC 
link change?

Thanks in advance,
