Why trying esd is a problem if it is not a problem in standalone
application? I understand why vout is hardcoded, but not why aout is
hardcoded. I want the plugin to use whatever aout I have in vlcrc or
autodetect it. Will it work that way if I remove following code?

    value.psz_string = AOUT_PLUGINS;
    VLC_Set( p_plugin->i_vlc, "conf::aout", value );

Have a nice day.
