Summary0002075: implement meta-data extraction from video files using libvlc
Descriptionlibvlc (from the VideoLAN/vlc project) and in particular the libvlc_media.h header of that library, provides a way to extract interesting meta-data from various video formats:

/** Meta data types */
typedef enum libvlc_meta_t {
    /* Add new meta types HERE */
} libvlc_meta_t;

We should create an LE plugin that uses libvlc to extract this meta data.
TagsNo tags attached.

test-vlc.c works if you use libvlc_media_new_path() -- if lua is installed.

But, libvlc_media_new_fd() and libvlc_media_new_callbacks() both fail for vlc3 and vlc4 (git master).
So this is clearly a hard vlc problem, likely the lua scripts don't work with the callbacks. I guess this bug has to wait for vlc5 or so...

Anyway, starting point 'vlc_extractor.c' is in git, but non-functional.
