Could you tell me if this patch is better ?

If not what is the correct way to handle this ?

We have VLM which lock *vlm mutex* and issue a command which lock *lock_media
mutex* in rtsp.c. (MediaNew for example).
In the other hand we have CommandThread (rtsp.c) which lock *lock_media mutex*
and then which issue a vlm command (play for example) which lock *vlm mutex*.
Which one is wrong ?

Thank you
