[vlc-devel] Rethinking the Mac OS X GUI

Today I started to do some conceptual work for the new Mac OS X user  
interface for VLC and noticed a thing, I think I should discuss:

	- What is VLC media player?
VLC more and more changes from a “simple” movie player, to an iTunes  
like application, that offers media library organizations, etc. I  
never thought of VLC as a media manager before, but I saw how much it  
can already do and what will all be added this summer.

Now I've implemented all those features in my gui concepts (which  
you'll see soon), but what about the people who just want a movie/ 
audio player? What's VLC's default behaviour? Will it import all the  
files you give it, or wil it play them in a minimized playback window?  
And how do I as a user decide whether I want VLC to manage my data or  

I think we need to answer those questions before I/we can continue to  
work on the new UI.
