    This post in the VLC forums may be on interest.

    You should be able to use the information posted there with a wrapper to produce a working MSI that installs VLC silently.

    It's no problem to repackage, it's an easy one.

    We have VLC installed on a number of machines throughout the school, just a word of caution though, I know it is free and thats is great but there some DVD's (more specifically Disney ones) which do not play well with it.

    It seems to have some real trouble starting them after the piracy warnings, just something I thought was worth a mention.
