Hi Filippo,

I appreciate the branch. I already started working on it today (by creating a local copy of the svn trunk). The main issue looks like some of the 'opaque' data structures have changed. I fixed some of this and got the code to compile, but I still left vlm_MediaNew etc... as undefined for now. It looks like there are some new replacement functions in src/input/vlm.c such as vlm_MediaInstanceNew. I'm still trying to get a handle upon what else needs to be done. I could maybe use a push in the right direction as to what functions to use. For example should I replace all calls to vlm_MediaNew with vlm_MediaInstanceNew ? If I could get some quick help from whoever was previously updating the vlm code I think I can make rapid progress. Although I already appreciate the help you and Olivier have given me.


Is it possible to get write access to just this branch, so I can keep track of progress?

Hi Andrew,
I created a branch at


which contains the missing vlm functions. If it is fine for you, you may 
start on working on this branch, and as soon as you report that the vlm 
code is ready to be merged, we will merge the branch into trunk again.

Tell me if you have any doubts,
