Please confirm that this is fixed in subsequent versions of media-video/vlc. There is nothing in change log about this, and no clear information as to what version this was fixed in. Other distress have this in version 2.0.2.
Comment 2 Kristian Fiskerstrand (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2014-06-21 22:32:15 UTC
If I'm not mistaken this issue was fixed in taglib 1.7.2 c.f. . Since this is listed for VLC, does it use any code form this library inline, or does it solely rely on it as a shared library?
Comment 3 Yury German Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev 2014-11-04 01:12:49 UTC
Fixed in 2.0.2 as per:

2.0.2 no longer in tree, setting to GLSA so that GLSA can be released.
