The global variables are real pain there, especially when moving code 
in to the different file I have to keep eye on them. In case of 
multithreading there should not be any problem unless I use the globals 
outside of the mplayer's thread. I can still make copy of those 
variables that I want to distribute over threads connection. However, 
this will be probably implemented outside of the mplayers code, since 
it depends on GUI needs.

Ok, thanks for the support for now.
I'm going to do some coding... :)
