[vlc-devel] Runtime file splitting

  Hi, vlc developers

  I am trying to extend the capabilities of the VLC-based Town Hall's
Session streaming system. The most important feature I need to add is
the ability to split the stream in several files at runtime. Each
session is being streamed to both the Internet (in several qualities)
and to a file. But unfortunately, each session can grow up to several
hours, and such a big file is not manageable (and hard to download).
Splitting the file would be perfect, but I cannot shutdown the file
dump because everything is occuring live and I would loose important
parts of the session.

  I've been looking at several modules, specially the file.c, to get
the idea on what to add. I'm afraid that a container can have a
header, that I would loose if I interfere in the writing process (by
closing the current file and creating a new one). I assume the feature
I want to add is not that easy to implement, but for sure I am somehow
lost. I appreciate any comments and suggestions on what to review.
