You're absolutely welcome.

No problem at all. VLC's nib files are stored in /extras/package/ 
MacOSX/Resources/English.lproj. Packaged versions of VLC do include  
stripped versions of the nibs in the English.lproj folder - the  
folders for different languages are only stubs to work-around some  
Cocoa limitations. As the nibs are being stripped before the  
packaging, you're unable to open those. We do so for 2 reasons: reduce  
disk space and prevent easy manipulation.

Not really, as you noticed on the forum. However, there are sample  
applications /projects/macosx/framework as well as helpful texts in  
the headers of the framework. Additionally, questions on the framework  
should probably be answered quickly on list. I'll have a look at the  
wiki page, but regrettably I won't be able to spend much time on it.

Best regards,
