[vlc-devel] Question on input_thread_t.stream->p_selected_area.i_tell

Hello, all ...

How does one tell what position they're at when reading an MPEG2 PS 
(i.e. VOB) from disk?  It doesn't use fopen() / fread(), instead opting 
for a sockets-based approach.  The stream->p_selected_area.i_tell 
member is only updated during a seek, so what if we never seek i.e. 
just play?  Can I somehow use the socket handle to get a FILE * to call 
ftell() with, or some other means of getting the current read pos?
