[vlc-devel] [RFC] Removing RemoteOSD
remi at remlab.net

The RemoteOSD plugin does not seem to be used by anybody. The contribution was
a drop-in fire-and-forget patch 11 years ago, and frankly, using the VNC
protocol for SPU is a gross hack. Search on fora or Google basically only
leads to the source code or build logs (in fact, mostly --disable-remoteosd).
Even the server-side (VDR ffnetdev) with which this plugin is intended to be
used, has been unmaintained for 6 years.
I propose to remove it, and then remove pf_sub_mouse.
