Hi, Srikanth,

Maybe I'm a bit late, but I have a couple of conceptual questions about
this, so please enlighten me:

I was wondering what is the reasoning behind adding all the information
fields like artist, album, track number, etc. to ml_media_t instead of
re-using vlc_meta_t (or developing it, if it is not sufficient) ?
For that matter, couldn't an input_item_t be used on the place of

Or is the idea for development just the opposite, to remove that information
from input_item_t, once the new ML is done?
