-1/ Either VLC instance has only one sa module that can handle multiple protocol announcement
-2/ Or the VLC instance has a list of SA, each one handling one service announcement, there can be multiple instance of the same plugin but with different parameters (for different protocols)
I prefer the choice 1/ but I'm OK with 2/ too.
I'm still waiting for Rémi answer about the choice 2/
"you need to put the set of parameters in the probe function (open), right ? Are you saying you want one module capability per protocol to handle all the different parameters ?"
