[vlc-devel] jvlc: Getting any response from VLM

I am trying to implement a live transcoding controller that wraps VLM
via jvlc. Sending a command to VLM works fine, but it seems there is no
way to get information back from jvlc. I understand that there is no
fancy playback event handling with jvlc>VLM like when using jvlc as a
player with MediaDescriptor. But what I don't understand is why no VLM
method throws a VLCException. showMedia has return type void and I don't
get any console logging from any VLM command (apart from actual VLC
logging, when VLM triggered it right).
Am I getting something wrong? Or is that just unimplemented?
It would be great if the VLM methods could throw exceptions and if
showMedia would at least return a String. I'd love to help out if I can,
but I'm new to JNA and no C programmer. I understand that this might be
a flaw in the actual VLM implementation. A push into the right direction
might enable me to do something simpler though.
Regards and thanks, Alex
