[vlc-devel] In vlc_object_find_name what is the parameter p_this?

Already it seems a bad idea to bypass libvcl-control.dlll and directly
access libvlc.dll. But since accessing is not curently possible
through libvlc-control.dll I am looking for a workaround until
something better gets implemented. I am just looking at a way to get
my projet moving forward and don't mind revisiting this code later
when a better way to do things is implemented.

Anything that works, although the worst possible kludge :-), is welcomed!

I understand that p_this is the object the search will start from but
can't find an object to pass here. NULL would have been nice if it
would have meant search ALL objects. But that doesn't work. What
objects/structures can I pass here? libvlc_instance_t?
libvlc_media_instance_t? libvlc_media_descriptor_t? Something else?
