This won't really fix the problem. Users will not know that they need to change 
the VLC settings. And those who do know will complain that it does not work, 
because they will omit to raise the limits in /proc or the registry or 

If the limits are wrong for some input or some output, I think that specific 
input or output should select a better default value. Increasing the buffer 
sizes for all sockets does not look like such a great idea to me.
