[vlc-devel] Making VLC aware of private data elementary streams

I would like to be able to extend VLC to be aware of and pass private
data elementary streams. For my application these streams have a
stream_id of private_stream_1 and contain camera geospatial data in KLV
format. (This encoding type has little if anything to do with XMF other
than using the SMPTE data dictionary.) For starters I would just like
to be able to pass this ES type from a TS input to a network stream
output but eventually would like to add encoders to accept a variety of
data sources which are independent of incoming video. Conceptually that
would be similar to handling a separate subtitle file.
Is anyone aware of any work done along these lines? It involves making
VLC aware of a new stream type in addition to audio, video, and subtitle
and ultimately adding codecs for that type. Is there any documentation
that would be of help? I thought I was in good shape when I found
"VLC media player API Documentation" by Christophe Massiot but it seems
to be profoundly out of date. Is it of any use or should I just ignore it?
Short of documentation, any pointers?
