Thanks for the nice patch!

2 remarks:
- instead of tabs, we expect 4 spaces for any code within VLC. Additionally, there shouldn't be neither on empty lines.
- for - (NSString*) nameOfCurrentItem, lastComponent isn't the way to go. instead, you should do something like this:

NSString *aString;
char *format = var_InheritString( VLCIntf, "input-title-format" );
char *formated = str_format_meta( p_input, format );
free( format );
aString = [NSString stringWithUTF8String:formated];
free( formated );

char *uri = input_item_GetURI( input_GetItem( p_input ) );

NSURL * o_url = [NSURL URLWithString: [NSString stringWithUTF8String: uri]];
free( uri );

if ([aString isEqualToString:@""])
    if ([o_url isFileURL])
        aString = [[NSFileManager defaultManager] displayNameAtPath: [o_url path]];
        aString = [o_url absoluteString];
return aString;

Additionally, setAudioVolume will need to be re-written, since the core's volume scale was changed to be cubic with a maximum of 200 % as far as I remember. However, this change wasn't reflected in the OS X UI so far.

Best regards,
