Wow. Just... wow. This looks *really* cool.

One technical question: I noticed a "deinterlace" checkbox in one of the
screenshots. Is there an option to choose the deinterlacer mode if you
select it?

True interlaced, and NTSC telecined, streams require different modes for
correct deinterlacing, and the same user may have both kinds of streams.
Now that we have IVTC in 1.2, a choice for this is needed. For a short
explanation and links, see http://wiki.videolan.org/Deinterlacing

Probably the simplest way to do this UI-wise would be one more combobox,
which becomes enabled when the Deinterlace checkbox is checked. The mode
chosen in the VLC configuration (if it's possible to query for it) could
be pre-selected in the combobox by default when the Stream Creator
opens. This is of course just a suggestion as to how I would do it :)


(P.S. Still alive, and still busy with RealLife (TM) (R) (pat. pend.). I
intend to get back to hacking VLC as soon as my schedule allows :) )
