[vlc-devel] python bindings for vlc

I coded a python binding, more complete than the one which already
exists in vlc/python, which implements the same API as the CORBA plugin.
>From a python program, apart from the initialization phase, both
bindings (native python or CORBA) can be used without changes.

With such a binding, prototyping vlc-based applications or testing
modules is easy and straightforward. With the native python binding, you
can also access lowlevel vlc object (get/set variables, etc).

To unify the behaviour between the python binding and the CORBA plugin,
I coded a new library, mediacontrol.c. To ease its sharing between the
two modules, it would be great if it could be integrated in vlc/src (and
the corresponding include in vlc/include). Would it be possible ? It
would ease my update of the CORBA plugin.

You can find all my developments on vlc at the URL

Any comments are welcome.
