Hello Thijs,

> On your forums I read that VLC is looking for some more developers for the Mac OS X interface, so, to see if I could help, I checked out and compiled the source and started digging though it.

> Meanwhile, I found an easy ticket I thought I could fix: #1122 [1]. Here [2] is a patch which will add an menu item to the "Playback"-menu to set the playback rate back to 1.0x. The file is rather big, as it requires changes to MainMenu.nib (the nibs are included in the diff, which looks rather ugly. If you want the .nibs separately I can send those too).
No problem, the patch applied cleanly as you took as the nib didn't change between patch creation and application.

> Localizations for the menu item are already in place, I think they come from the Qt-version.

> I hope I've made the patch correctly and that it can be committed, and I'm looking forward to contributing more to VLC.

Patch is merged and committed to the 1.1. I'm looking forward to further contributions! While I'm at it, I would like to make you aware of Lunettes, our re-write of VLC for Mac, which will become a replacement for the existing code in the future (later in 2010).

In case you encounter any questions about VLC development, this is the place to ask :-)
