Indeed, it's not valid. The goal of this patch is to have all libvlc calls from one single thread, likely the main one.

Since set/close functions are blocking, it needs to be moved in a background thread, then all functions need to be moved to this thread. This make the LibVLC very hard to use when interacting with a UI.
