You're using a newer GCC version that is more strict regarding implicit
conversions from const char* to char*. (by not allowing them at all.)

These code parts need to be fixed by either using const char* as type,
or by inserting a (char*) for conversion at the right place.

This sounds like a mismatch in 64-bit file handling. Beginning from
VDR-1.7.4, all plugins must use DEFINES += -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64
-D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE -D_LARGEFILE64_SOURCE in their makefiles to enable
large file handling.


Cheers,
