[vlc-devel] Video Time does not match Reported Time

Sending a bump --

We are currently determining whether we can continue trying to work with
VLC, or whether we need to jump ship to another video player.

The project has some national grant funding and resources that could be
helpful for the VLC project, if VLC is a viable solution.

I've been digging around in the code a bit, but obviously there's a lot
there to dig through, and any advice or guidance regarding this question
(both where to look in the vlc code and general "will this work"
discussion) would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You,

Datavyu Developer
