If anyone else is running vlc <3.0 on linux with no problems on RC4 or later, please let us know.

It seems like 401e08a was an effort to achieve vlc 3 compatibility but it seems to have been at the expense of vlc 2.x. Particularly in lineReceived() of players/vlc.py, having constants.VLC_LISTEN_FOR_STDOUT not True causes syncplay to give a "Failed to connect to VLC" error. When I set that constant to True everything seems to work perfectly.

I'm hoping the recent commits to the 1.4.x Syncplay branch will resolve the various VLC issues, but I've only tested it on Windows. If Linux and *BSD users can test the Syncplay 1.4.x branch GIT HEAD with VLC 2.2.4 and VLC 3.x and let me know how it goes that'd be useful.
