No, you are misunderstanding the purpose of this mechanism.  The ‘watch variable’ is checked only within the LIVE555 event loop, but it can be set (to a non-zero value) by an external thread, to signal - to the LIVE555 thread - that it needs to exit its call to “doEventLoop()".  That’s what VLC’s “live555.cpp” interface code does.
