Adding a VLC media source (make sure that VLC is installed of course) is possible in general. When adding a file/URL to the play list, obs is killed by a segmentation fault.

When compiling manually the AUR package aur/obs-studio-browser, the VLC source is working. So, it seems to be a packaging problem to me.

Regarding the logs in gist: I just replaced the AUR package with the community package. It might be the case that additionally built filter packages (obs-vlc etc) are currently causing warning additionally.

Additional info:
* package version(s): obs-studio 26.1.2-2, vlc 3.0.12-1
* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:
* Install obs-studio and vlc
* Make backup of config folder ~/.config/obs-studio
* Open obs-studio, add a scene (if not yet done)
* Add a VLC source
* Add a local file to the playlist
* Confirm the settings (which should show the VLC media stream in the OBS stream)
* Segfault gets thrown
* Any further start of OBS immediately leads to a segfault
* Restore the old configuration to allow obs to start again
This task depends upon
