Thanks for making me aware of that. I chose a different approach to this problem in [d285961c0b2422c8c5e7af0109263064ec8443d2]. I'll rework that code aspect for 2.0-next to have something nicer. Especially VLCMain isn't the place where string conversations should take place. This legacy code dating back to VLC 0.3.x in 2002..

Best regards,
