[vlc-devel] Controlling VLC with another application (Matlab) in Mac OSX

Hi Ali,

the common OS X way would be Applescript.

Use Applescript Editor to make a script like:

tell application "VLC"
end tell

Save it as vlc.scpt and you can call that in MATLAB with:

system('osascript vlc.scpt')

Open the Dictionary in the Applescript Editor to see which commands VLC supports.

Best regards
