It works fine for playing most files, but I encountered an issue when 
trying to play a DVD, perhaps for libdvdread support was not built:

Your input can't be opened:VLC is unable to open the MRL 'dvd:///...'

The prior vlc could read it with libdvdread built. For now I encode 
using HandBrake then play with vlc.

Without TagLib, vlc is not reading the tag informations of mp3 files I 
also witnessed.
I could not say how vlc uses cairo, and if the lack of it brings any issue.

I have been using 2.2.1 with the addiotional options (gstreamer1 from 
SBo), and did not notice any issue.
