thanks for the tips, i'll give it a try. as for using NULL for
video/audio if the stream is missing one of them, won't this cause a bit
of a performance penalty, since i'll essentially need to destroy the old
stream_t instance and create a new one with the NULL video or audio?
also, about my use of "extra_stream"... is it possible to use NULL for
video and audio output since i don't care about output in this case?
last time i tried that, i was unable to get metadata or stream
parameters out of it. i think, anyway; it was a while ago that i tried
it that way.
