Hi all!

I am working on VLC customization for "IVIVO Ltd" company. IVIVO would like to contribute some of the developed changes to the original VLC project.

The essense of change is the following:

1. Currently VLC has an update "feature" which is accessible trough the main menu in wxWidgets GUI.

2. The program was modified in such a way that it automatically checks for updates on startup. This check done in a separate thread and does not affect the main course of execution. If a new update is available then the window with available updates is

This feature was tested and used for several months in Windows and Linux in wxWidgets and Skins2 GUI without a problem.

Is this feature desirable for the VLC community? If yes what would be the best way to contribute the code to the VLC project?
