After some thoughts, I may have found a nicer way to deal with still

When no access is provided, why not create a fake-file on the fly ? The
short patch attached to this email shows the idea. (tested and working)

Advantages are:
   "vlc image.png"  and "vlc fake:// :fake-file=image.png" are really
synonyms. No restriction or performance loss.

This patch is more a proof-of-concept. (The deprecated vlc_object_find
is used to quickly validate the idea). If this seems okay for you, a
better way to retrieve p_input may then be looked at.
