    Data from vlc into RR then flash skin

    I'm trying to put together a flash skin that will allow me to use VLC player from road runner. I've managed to get most things working but having problems.
    I need to know if vlc is currently playing. VLC will return this info (sending is_playing returns either 1 or 0 ) if asked but how do I get rr to ask and then pass the info to my flash skin. I've tried customlabels and fscommands but its beyond me at the moment.

    I'm hoping to then expand this to things like what title is playing etc.

    Any help would be greatly apprieciated by me and my kids.

    thanks

    how are you polling information from VLC ? the last time I tried their SDK it was incredibly buggy and it crashed all the time.

    Hi Guino

    Thanks for the reply. I was hoping that some implementation of the fscommand in RR could recieve the data as well but I guess not with you mentioning sdx's.

    So I'm now thinking about writting my flash program to communicate with the activex interface to vlc. I am a complete noob at this and learning everything via google so dont be too harsh if I'm talking rubbish. Just trying to learn

    I've considered integrating VLC with RR in the past, however, though the interface worked, it was too buggy and to unstable for me to consider finishing it, not to say presenting it to the community. Maybe it's working better now, so I just wish you good luck on your research.

    tried to make some integration as well, and had the same results, to many issues, so i dropped the idea.but don't get discourage and give it a try.

    Thanks for all the encouragement. If I produce anything reasonable I'll publish the results.

    fingers crossed
