Just a quick note, 'coz it is 2.00am here. I compiled Omxplayer on the Pi2, and played Big Buck Bunny, video but no sound.
I used the source from here, as it seems to be the most recently active:
A lot of problems, but did succeed in compiling.
It downloads the latest ffmpeg, and applies very restricted configure options. I found Raspbian Omxplayer source dated 2013, with much better configure options.
I am going to look at compiling ffmpeg, that can then be used for both VLC and Omxplayer. Will keep working on it this evening, gotta sleep now, then busy other things most of the day.
