The versions of libav and vlc in wheezy are all EOLed upstream. vlc is also
behind some upstream releases in the 2.0.x series. If anyone intends to keep vlc
alive for wheezy LTS, I'd recommend to upgrade to latest release there first.

I don't plan to spend any time on the wheezy versions of libav and vlc once the
normal wheezy support has ended.
