I can't see the SetEvents function and the video callback functions.

Make sure you have the LibVLC debug symbols installed (or an unstripped
LibVLC installation), and run your application under gdb. Once you get the
deadlock, just press Ctrl+Z and "threads apply all bt" then Enter.

We can't reproduce it with incomplete code.
