I have a feeling, that Pierre is away for 2 weeks, so we can consultate
then, but now it would be helpfull too.

I implemented it in libvlc, it isnt finished and tested now
but I hope, it will be fine to work with it.

What I dont know and what I need to know, is when
I have to restore applied filters? I suppose
after changing media, but what about other cases?

Maybe I overlooked it, has libvlc something to
indicate new created vout? Because for example
after setting new video media, vout structure will
be created after short moment...

if someone wants to review and make comments:
