Comment 1 Eric Christensen 2014-07-31 22:21:18 EDT
Any chance in upgrading EPEL 5 & 6 to the version shipped in Fedora?
Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2014-08-01 07:24:50 EDT
Syncing with f19's xine-lib-1.1.21 probably would be the most viable option, even if it would break plugin ABI.
Comment 3 Eric Christensen 2014-08-06 10:06:28 EDT
I just took a look at the package and it looks... complicated.  Not sure I'd be able to help much.  Any idea when you'll be able to rebuild these packages?
Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2014-08-06 10:50:51 EDT
Yeah, I looked at it a bit over vacation last week, and it'll be a bit of work... not to mention that the .spec dropped support for old rpm constructs that any el5 build would need anyway awhile back.

Anyway, I'd say a timeframe of another 7-10 days (at most hopefully), would be a fair eta.  So, I'll target having this sorted out by next weekend.
