[vlc-devel] VLC_TimeGet and VLC_TimeSet precision

Hello everyone...

I was wondering if it could be possible to get a more accurate measurement
of the time inside an app using LibVLC ?

The 1-second precision given by the LibVLC API (with VLC_TimeGet &
VLC_TimeSet) is quite fuzzy... Is there a way to circumvent this problem by
for example getting / setting internal VLC Variables with
VLC_Variable{Get,Set} that would help getting / setting the current position
in a stream? I also tried to use VLC_PositionGet as a time referer, but for
a given position in seconds, the float returned by this function is
different for every diffent stream. What are the units used by
VLC_Position{Get,Set} if it is a reliable way to manipulate positions in

Thank you for your help !
