I like the idea of a group-funded effort if necessary, but beyond being
a lazy person there's another reason why finding out where RunRev is
with this can be useful: it'd be a drag if we knock ourselves out and
come up with a useful external only to see those features added into the
product the following week.
My own needs with audio and video playback are modest:
- determine a file's duration
- determine the current time
- set the current time
If I had those I can handle almost anything else I enjoy with QT, making
a custom controller for looping, selection, etc.
It would be nice to know where those three things fall on RunRev's
