Hi All,

I have made an application for interacting with the iTunes on Mac OSX using
applescript and Apple's ScriptingBridge Framework.
I generated the .h file for the VLC.app using the sdef file with
terminal by using
folowing command
sdef VLC.app/ | sdp -fh --basename VLC
However, the header file shows only few properties exposed for control
(play/pause, stop etc)
Is it possible to get the data for current playing track and playlist.
Can i do some sort of IPC or access the VLC running instance to get this info??

--One who asks is seen as a fool, the one who doesnt asks remain a fool forever
