ok, if you say so.

That still leaves us with the original problems A, B and C.

Any consultants out there willing to get paid for implementing:

1) A vlc event for the unfortunate detection of ..

"more than 5 seconds of late video -> dropping frame (computer too slow ?)"

(that event should be catchable from python .. needs tweaking the python 
ctypes module as well)

2) .. or, the reinitialization / restart of mediaplayer when that happens ?
