Okay, then, I hereby request these 2 commits to be reverted, since:
- they were not tested at all
- they block an entire port from being developed any further
- the author is not willing to improve the current situation

You are absolutely welcome to add these patches to a ticket on trac, so people with the needed devices and knowledge can work on it and submit a working solution afterwards.

Just FYI: to fix the use of the QTKit modules without the Mac interface (aka with -I rc / -I dummy or through libvlc/VLCKit), there are different approaches of reclaiming the main thread through Cocoa, which are already used throughout the Mac video output module. So, your patches aren't related to this problem.

Best regards,
