My reason to do that is to be able to start a new play from inside the
event. I may not be doing things correctly but presently it simply hangs in
my callback. Probably because I am trying to release something that is
probably what is calling me back! :-) The media descriptor. I have
circumvented the problem by posting myself a message (I am working under
Windowzzzz) and this lets me do what I want since in the handler for this
message I am out of the libvlc_MediaInstanceReachedEnd event callback. But I
would rather not have to resort to this double callback scheme to get things
