First of all, this is implementation specific discussion and should be done
in vlc-devel at videolan.org.
second thing: I think this is a very very ugly way to do this, and I don't
think the static variables will be the biggest problems with it. Some points:
VLC_Init() may take very long time to finnish (since it reads all the
plugins and stuff). The while loop may in some cases never finnish ( i.e. if
the stream is a udp:// stream ). You also need to pass the output of
VLC_Create to VLC_Init() and VLC_Play() as the 0 object is allready used by
Except for this it is just plain ugly. Work is being done to clean up the
input layer so that implementing this kind of functionality will be much
easier, but don't expect it to be ready very soon.
