I am looking at adding a modification to vlc to support ONVIF Profile G 
to support playing recorded video. This is done by setting the Range 
header on the RTSP Play request. Live555 already supports setting the 
RTSP header. My thought was to add a new function to the 
lib/media_player.c function called:

void libvlc_media_player_set_abs_range( libvlc_media_player_t *p_mi,
                                        char* fromClock, char* toClock)

This would then be used by the modules/access/live555.cpp file to send 
the arguments to the live555 subsystem. This meets my needs as my vlc 
player is embedded in another application that uses the library interface.

Before I headed down this path wanted to make sure this sounded 
reasonable to everyone and no one had a problem with the new 
media_player function.
Any thoughts? Anyone think of a better way? Any suuggestions?
