Thanks for your answer (and others in the thread). I missed most answers due 
to me forgetting to ask CC and not being subscribed (I have fixed that).

From the different replies to my mail, I have currently decided to see if I 
could test this feature by using command line arguments passed to libvlc_new 

I would like to optionally propose to the user to specify :
* no replay gain ever ;
* replay gain and in case both modes are possible to prefer album gain ;
* replay gain and in case both modes are possible to prefer single track gain.

I would always automatically fallback to any of the gain if only one exists in 
the metadata.

If and only if there is a consensus about the possibility to use another way 
to set this when calling libvlc, I will be happy to work on it. In the 
meantime, I will work through libvlc_new parameters.
