Hi Miguel,

Would appreciate it if you let me know if your code is checked in. Which files do I need to look at?

Nice to hear that! I'm currently developing something very similar. I'm implementing an option to select the scenes you want to play, so you can repeat some parts, skip others, change playing order...

My idea is to use a very simple dialog in the Qt interface to select the scenes ( or to read them from a file ). And then a function, similar to that of the A to B loop, that jumps to the next scene when the current is ended...

I'm currently finishing the dialog to select the scenes, so maybe for today i can have a first version of the patch.



In my case i've just arrive to vlc-devel, so hello everyone!
