   - On Windows they are in C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\http\.hosts and

 * The marq, mosaic and logo commands in the rc interface changed. They

   You can then use commands like: @test marq-marquee Goodbye

   following states: IDLE/CLOSE=0, OPENING=1, BUFFERING=2, PLAYING=3, PAUSED=4,
   STOPPING=5, FORWARD=6, BACKWARD=7, ENDED=8, ERROR=9. With FORWARD and
