[emms-help] EMMS to control vlc for *.avi movies?

For making notes of av materials, I would like to try (with my weak elisp knowledge) to knit together emms with org-mode.  Most of these materials are available as *.avi files.  I am using GNU/Linux Ubuntu, and I have cloned the git repo for emms. 

I am not a developer, but I did notice that an interface for vlc has been devised.  I would like to be able to control the video, perhaps including a timer interface through org-mode, so I can pause, make a note with a time stamp, then resume. 

I am now only asking whether I am dreaming, or is it indeed a feature that would be possible?

WOuld it be possible to access a running vlc? 

I noticed a question on the mailing list about subtitles.  Vlc works very well with subtitles. 

I am not too good at elisp, but I notice there is a vlc api, and I am foolish enough to look at it.  Even better, if someone has already done part of the work.

Thank you,


Alan Davis
