Install and run VLC on the Organelle M (OS 3.2) with an Extra Menu script that locks the unit and remounts the root folder with Read-Write permissions while it’s running (includes an uninstall script).

USE IT AT YOUR OWN RISKS : if the OS crashes while it’s running that could break it! (that’s the first reason why the script locks the Organelle)

NOTE#1 : the volume knob doesn’t work, the output volume is always at max, it can only be set via VLC, so be careful!

NOTE#2 : we can’t run audio from VLC and Pure Data at the same time (that’s the other reason why the script locks the Organelle).

#1 connect the Organelle to the internet via Wifi

#2 copy VLC_1-0.zop into /Patches

#3 reload the Organelle (menu Storage -> Reload)

#4 run “Install VLC_1-0.zop”

this will download and install the latest compatible revision and reset the OS time and date from the internet.

here are the command lines of the installer :

sudo mount / -o remount,rw

sudo date -s “$(wget -qSO- –max-redirect=0 google.com 2>&1 | grep Date: | cut -d’ ‘ -f5-8)Z”

sudo apt update

sudo apt-get install vlc << END



sudo mount / -o remount,ro

cp -r $USER_DIR/Patches/VLC $USER_DIR/System

rm -r $USER_DIR/Patches/VLC
