Yes, that could work, or if there was a regular safe flow of control it 
would be trivial to just have a timer check in the live555.cpp code to 
do it.  The problem in both cases is nothing is calling doEventLoop() 
while the stream is paused...  That's an internal VLC issue which I need 
to discuss with the core devs...

Thanks again
