Hello happy people,

yes I'm AmiSyl on the forum, sorry I forgot to sign last email...

ok, sorry for that, patch is now there:

caused by win32 tests... (damn notepad :))

I modified again to add a special function (MRLFirstWord) to find the first word
in the MRL from the ADD dialog box of the web interface, but to me that
may cause some problems, for MRL including options... As I saw in
modules/control/http/util.c the FirstWord function is used to separate
the filename from the options (used in MRLParse, in the same file just
below) but what are these options ? I don't know, and thus I could have
broken the code who takes care of them... if someone could lighten me :)

And also the way I use audio-tracks and sub-tracks cycling is not
really accurate, because if one of these commands is given before a file is
streamed, VLC crashes, as there is no test if a file is loaded or not
when the code is executed... I'm working on it 
and I'm still looking for a way to give the final user (the stream
client) the possibility to directly select the audio or sub track that
it wants...
