Clement et al,

This is the command line I use:

VLC.app/Contents/MacOS/VLC -verbose --intf dummy -I rc --rc-host  
localhost:8001 /Users/jmzorko/work/playlist.m3u :sout='#duplicate 
{dst=std{access=udp,mux=ts,url=}}' --sout-keep -- 
ttl 0 --loop

... which starts the playlist streaming to the address specified.  If  
I use the rc interface over telnet and add a new item, the new item  
plays locally because the new input thread isn't getting it's "sout"  
variable populated.  The sout option I pass on the command line does  
work with all of the items in the playlist, except for items I add  
via rc after the playlist is initially made, so are the sout options  
local to the playlist, or the items therein?
