I just mean that input-current is not a good place to *modify* the
If you want to change the default stream output for playlist items, you
can (create and) set the "sout" variable on the playlist object. This
won't confuse other interfaces, won't break streaming wizards. If
instead you just want to play one single item with sout, then you can
create a new input item with a sout option like the wizards already do.
Neither of those, nor your approach solve the problem of doing VoD. The
playlist is not suited for VoD; it is suited for live playback (no
sout), live streaming (paced sout), and passable for offline conversion
