Hello Mehdi,

There are two API in fact in libvlc-control. There are LibVLC whose  
functions are prefixed with libvlc_ and a simplified API called  
MediaControl whose function are prefixed with mediacontrol_.

I don't have any MediaControl sample code, however there are some  
LibVLC sample code in:


However current libvlc doesn't allow frame by frame manipulation.  
Yet, you may want to think about writing a video filter module, which  
allows frame by frame manipulation.

Hope this helps and don't hesitate to ask if you have more questions,
