[MPlayer-dev-eng] open_stream for DRM question

Hello all,

I've been looking at the open stream calls to see if there is a way
to hook in some sort of a DRM filter.  I suppose I could write a mpst
server that does the processing, but I was curious if:

1)  There is a way to hook in a DRM filter or
2)  Is there interest in having one?

I am thinking of taking the approach of writing a new open_stream
mechanism that passes the requests to a loaded shared library that can
be specified in the command line or maybe the URL.  This library would
support the required functions (open,fillbuffer, etc).
