Thanks for the reply,  Following is the error :

ERROR: Nothing PROVIDES 'ffmpeg' (but /home/harman/Desktop/amit_kr/iot-solo/Platform/src/arch/arm/imx6sl/YOCTO/sources/meta-openembedded/meta-multimedia/recipes-multimedia/vlc/vlc_2.2.2.bb DEPENDS on or otherwise requires it)
ERROR: ffmpeg was skipped: because it has a restricted license not whitelisted in LICENSE_FLAGS_WHITELIST
ERROR: Required build target 'vlc' has no buildable providers.
Missing or unbuildable dependency chain was: ['vlc', 'ffmpeg']

I need to set following flag in local.conf, in build directory.

Without knowing the error message it's hard to help, but you're probably hitting the commercial license flags.

Once you've read the relevant licensing terms and have agreed to them, adding something like this to your local/distro configuration will allow the build to continue:

LICENSE_FLAGS_WHITELIST += "commercial_vlc"

(where commercial is the license flag that the recipe used, and vlc is the recipe name that sets the flag)

I am using yocto 2.1.2 krogoth version.
I tried compiling VLC in it, but I fialed. It is giving other dependency package name which contains “restricted licence”.

Please help me out, how I can compile and test VLC using yocto for ARM.
