In addition, VLC could check for "x-callback-url" as the URLs host. I'm not sure how to handle "x-error". I would recommend not returning to the caller in case of an error and instead presenting the error messages directly from VLC. Would you agree?

Yep. Maybe that error dialog could offer an option to go back to the caller?

Best regards,
