[vlc-devel] [PATCH] "ifmem" access module

Hi all.

I'd like to submit an access module for inclusion, and this will be my
first attempt at a VLC patch.  This was originally developed for another
project and I found the code, modified it, but retained the original
copyright header and author credit.

This module accepts 3 parameters on registration: a read callback memory
address, a seek callback memory address, and a pointer to user context

This is used, for example, to provide content to libvlc to decode which
originates from the hosting application via some non-standard means, for
example streamed on a proprietary protocol (or encapsulated in another,
such as an XMPP stream).

I have developed streaming support in the Phonon VLC backend based on
this module which I have submitted simultaneously with this one to that

Patch against git (as of now):


(Please contact me directly with any questions or comments, or if this
requires any changes to meet standards)
