[vlc-devel] dynamic text overlay on video stream

Interesting.  I had found a few people using marq with static text, but 
hadn't found anyone successfully using it with dynamic text and was 
having difficulty finding the documentation on it.  What you are 
suggesting does look very close to something I might be looking for.  
However, I would need to update the file about 60 times per second and 
even though it's an SSD drive, I'm thinking a small ram disk might be 
more suitable.  I will give that a shot and see if I can get that 
working.  Sorry if my post was a bit premature.
