Clement (cc. "vlc-devel"),

VLC uses our open source "LIVE555 Streaming Media" libraries 
<http://www.live555.com/liveMedia/> to implement the RTSP client 
support for VLC.  These libraries already support the RTSP 'trick 
play' functionality, and will likely work with nCube 
servers.  However, VLC does not yet use all the features of the 
"LIVE555 Streaming Media" libraries.  In particular, it does not yet 
use the "scale" parameter to "RTSPClient::playMediaSession()" and 
"RTSPClient::playMediaSubsession()".  (This parameter is used to 
implement 'fast forward' and 'reverse play'.)

A question to the VLC developers: Is anyone currently working on 
updating the VLC code (specifically, the "livedotcom.cpp" interface 
code) to support this?  (If not, then I might be willing to assist 
Clement's company to help make this happen.)
