[vlc-devel] need help with vlc

Hi folks,

I am playing web streams through VLC on Ubuntu Hardy.

>From forum posts I gather that the VLC linux streaming issue in 1.0.x
is not trivial to solve and hence I am forced to downgrade to 0.99a.

I am using mozilla-plugin and realized that in 0.99a the http-caching
setting is ignored. I saw forum posts that some patch exists to
resolve this, but couldn't find it, can somebody point me to that.
I want to change the hotkeys for mozilla plugin, is there a run time
parameter setting for this or do I have to do it at compile time? If
there is a run time setting, can somebody show me an example?

Also, I don't want VLC to capture the key board events when mouse is
on top of the video object, but rather pass the events to java script,
can this be done?

I want to take VLC to production and am looking for some developer to
do some bug fixes and customization. If somebody on the mailing list
is willing to help me, please send me an email.

A background on that is that I am also planning VLC to run in stand
alone mode and need the dynamic zoom in full screen (in version 1.0+)
with web streaming (in version less then 1.0). And I want a look and
feel that complies with our requirements, fairly simple but a
background image and placing of buttons (again resolved in 1.0x but
can't use it due to web streaming).
