Thanks for the clarification, I will get the source. Its part of the  
main VLC source code?

There is no rush, the idea of the page is more long term. For me if  
someone feels in the mood for writing some documentation related to  
VLCKit, at least there is somewhere to put it. Its also to at least  
make people aware that its there.

Just for the record, the page is here: http://wiki.videolan.org/VLCKit
