[vlc-devel] chasing playlist bug ...

Hello, all ...

VLC 0.8.4a has an issue where, if I stream a playlist to a multicast  
address and then, using the rc interface over telnet, add a new item  
to the playlist, two things happen:

1. the new playlist item plays immediately (this is because  
PLAYLIST_GO is specified in playlist_AddItem, I verified this with  
and without)
2. when the new playlist item plays, it doesn't play to the multicast  
address, it plays on the VLC acting as the server (the one doing the  
streaming) ...

I'm looking at the code to determine how to fix it.  I see the  
playlist thread code (which calls PlayItem() when the next item needs  
to be played), but I don't know exactly where the sout instance is  
created per playlist item (or why it's not being created, or being  
created incorrectly, for items added to the playlist after the fact).

Can anyone give me a hint as to where to look?
