[vlc-devel] Regarding the HTTP POST implementation

First, I would *generally* advise against taking on bounties if you don't understand what it entails. The project is not short on bugs and bounties, if the goal is to fix one unparticular something...

Now as regards HTTP POST, it's not a stand-alone thing, unlike most other bounties. Just like I'm currently working on an HTTP PUT access output to write PUT support, in the existing internal HTTP API, I don't think one can implement POST meaningfully and reasonably without a use case.

So really, you first need to clarify what your use case(s) is/are.
