Hello, it seems that you want to control marq filter realtime, while playing
(e.g. changing configuration command variables ( VAR_COMAND ).
It think this approach is a little constraining in the sense that it adds 4
libvlc exported functions  to control one filter.
On the other hand the concept of realtime variable control not only for
marquee but also for an amount of other modules is wanted (e.g. a parameter
of a video fitler that could be mapped to a slider on the libvlc user
I have proposed since a long time an extention to libvlc to account for
these changes. You can update realtime command configuration variables. This
has to implications : a) the changes are applied to module config ,so they
coulb be permanently saved, b) the changes are applied on-the-fly on the
internal module (command) variable so the effect of the change is
[an example use case for marquee filter could be :
libvlc_config_update( p_libvlc, "marq-marquee", "new text to display",
I don't know if it needs rework for current merging cause i have some time
to maintain it. But it works for me.
If you are interested search in the mailing list archives for the latest
libvlc_config_update patch. Feedback is welcome.
. libvlc API should be kept as small and feuture rich as possible.
