Description

As said in the title vlc fails to start with the following error:

@
$ vlc
VLC media player 3.0.2 Vetinari (revision 3.0.2-0-gd7b653cf14)
[00007fe6dad1cae0] main libvlc: Running vlc with the default interface. Use 'cvlc' to use vlc without interface.
[00005632bed917c0] skins2 interface error: cannot instantiate dialogs provider
[00005632bed4b300] main playlist: playlist is empty
[00005632bed917c0] [cli] lua interface: Listening on host "*console".
VLC media player 3.0.2 Vetinari
Command Line Interface initialized. Type `help' for help.

vlc was installed with apk add vlc-qt

The issue exists since alpine 3.8 and more specifically after this commit i think https://git.alpinelinux.org/cgit/aports/commit/community/vlc/APKBUILD?id=8421c776c506388c25e0ade7259a7862b7d010b0

I must add that vlc packaging probably needs a revise.
I also couldn't figure out how to launch vlc with gui.
