I'm not sure when xine 0.9.14 will be released, but I think it might be after 
KDE 3.1 (final) is released. KDE-3.1 would require a CVS copy of xine if we 
want to use the new API in that case.

Okay, thanks for testing the patches. I have committed them. The changes to 
VideoPlayObject should make it easier to use this interface for other video 
decoders (mpeglib).
