Thank you Felix,

Actually, I well know LibVLC, i'm FreetuxTV developer and I use it for the
video rendering, that works very well. But for my other project, I think it
is too high level for me, i need to control each frame, performing some
fast transformation, such a zoom, rotation, text overlay and more... And
LibVLC, i a little limited for that i think, and has lot of dependencies a
don't need.
