*Perhaps it works with other models too. Contact me if you test one successfully!

  1. Use the newest python (ctypes based) bindings from http://liris.cnrs.fr/advene/download/python-ctypes/
  2. Rewrite the app using pygtk instead of wxpython to take advantage of vlcwidget.py which provides a pygtk VLCWidget() to ease integration.
