How do you handle the 'mouse click’ event on the ‘play’ button (when the user tells VLC to resume playing)?  Via a socket event?

But anyway, this is silly - why would you possibly object to the LIVE555 event loop thread waking up every 10ms (and then going straight back to sleep in “select()” if nothing else is happening)?

But if you *really* don’t want this happening, then you could disable this 10ms tick (through a parameter to the “BasicTaskScheduler” creation function), and then arrange for all communication/signaling with the LIVE555 event loop thread to happen via sockets (i.e., you could use a socket to communicate between the VLC app thread and the LIVE555 event loop thread).
