I put an eye on the http interface , this is what i need.
But i don't know how to use the functions. I know i can use Open( 
vlc_object_t ) function which can do what i want, but as a vlc-dev newbie i 
don't know how to do this.

could you post a simple code to open http://mondomaine.com/test.php an put 
the result in monresultat ?

don't know how to convert the url to the vlc_object needed by the function .
