Thanks for the information.

But as per my understanding input object is a transient object, its life
cycle starts by trigger from Playlist and ends either by trigger from
Playlist or on termination of stream. so application needs to check for the
valid input objects continuously in a loop and register the callback
function. IMO, callback function should be registered with playlist, which
internally, attach the callback function to input object. Playlist is
anyway already running a thread.

More precisely, that's the "state" integer VLC variable of the master input

object. You can register a callback with it, so you don't have to poll.
