This is a generic problem with libvlc vout handling (and aout also).

IMHO, instead of looking for any single vout, it should:
 - Apply the setting to all existing vouts for the input,
 - Store the setting in the appropriate input variable for later vouts,
 - Not return an exception when there are no vouts.

This would ensure that the API works regardless of the number of outputs
and make it a less racy and easier to use.
I've been meaning to do this in 1.1, but I haven't had time this far. Help
