I'm trying to play a MIDI file on OS X 10.10 Yosemite. I just downloaded the latest version of VLC from the VideoLAN website, and followed these MIDI instructions to look at audio codecs, but FluidSynth doesn't appear in the preferences window. How can I get it?

Apparently, FluidSynth was removed not only from the Windows build but also from the OS X build.

This feature has been removed because of security issues.

However, the plugin is part of the VLC source tree so can be built according to this link. (Never tried it myself.)
