Hello Herman,

Thanks for your report.

The Mac OS X current work is quite suspended because of my latest  
work on it. This may be a shame...

But please stay tuned. I do plan to merge my work [1] before the end  
of the week.

However my current work is ambitious and probably a bit silly. I  
decided to use only libvlc code. So we loose features and we have a  
much less robust code base (young and less tested). I also do believe  
that the code is much more simple (much less lines of code). So it is  
a good opportunity to jump in for new comer and give an hand.
