[vlc-devel] when is the media done playing?

I'm developing a user interface module for vlc, and I have what is 
probably a basic question:

How do I find out when a piece of audio or video has finished playing? 
I know how to find out when the input module is done with it, and when 
the playlist thinks it's done playing, but I'm having trouble finding 
out when it's actually finished playing out of the speaker and/or 
monitor.  I assume I need to ask something of the audio or video output 
module, but I don't know what/how to ask.

On a more general note, what is the best way to discover such things? 
I've gone through the documentation online and searched through the 
code and have yet to find a list of "These are the things you can ask 
of an output module, these are the things you can ask of an input 
module, etc." Am I missing something?

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
