[vlc-devel] python bindings

Hi All,

I just started working on an rtsp streamer based on VLC. It uses the vlc python bindings. I noticed that in the main source tree there is a python/vlrs directory which contains this exact thing. I've made some minor changes to it, and it partially works now, although still buggy.
In general, I like the design and am happy to help work out the kinks on it and contribute any patches back to the VLC team, rather than starting one from scratch. 

However, I noticed that it is using the 'old' libvlc functions instead of the new ones. My question is: is the new libvlc API implemented fully in C/C++ and does it just require Python Bindings or is it not ready for production use yet. I can probably update vlrs to use the new libvlc functions if you would like, if they  are implemented in the C/C++ code. If you don't think this is necessary, and plan on keeping the old API around that is fine also.

I just wanted to see if anyone is currently working on this, or if it is on the backburner for now. If the original author of this code or anyone working on it could let me know what needs to be done and how you would like to integrate it into the VLC project I would be happy to help you.

Also, please let me know the status of the libvlc and MediaControl APIs so I can wrap those up in python bindings as well.

I'm looking forward to working with you all.

Thank you very much.
