> I can see the argument for converting GET_TIME and GET_POSITION to events, and then GET_TITLE, and GET_CHAPTER. But duration (GET_LENGTH) and NPT offset are mostly constant. NPT does not look like the most pressing issue in terms of conversion from polling to event.
Length is not constant and is also used to compute seek offset (Ex: DVD
titles) and sometimes it can only be known late (ex: EIT program).
I have suggested to drop the Length to return only Start (which is
supposely what normal_time is doing) & End time (which can be extended
to another seekable tuple in case of timeshift on source).
