Thanks again!

I did some searching and found "--vout-event" which will enable/disable keyboatd and mouse events in VLC and allow the map/plugin swap to work when you click the plugin window.

So best results are obtained with the GCS configured as follows:

path_to_ground_segment/cockpit/gcs -plugin "cvlc video_stream --vout-event=3 --drawable-xid=" -layout appropriate_layout.xml

And in my case:

path_to_ground_segment/cockpit/gcs -plugin "cvlc rtsp:// --vout-event=3 --drawable-xid=" -layout right_col_vid.xml

There should be a way to disable mouse events from vlc. I did not find
it :-( There is a "Swap plugin/map" entry in the menu ...

I've added a "plugin" renderer for a video_plugin papget. You can now

     <papget type="video_plugin" display="plugin" x="300" y="250">
<property name="command" value="cvlc video_source --drawable-xid="/>
       <property NAME="width" VALUE="320"/>
       <property NAME="height" VALUE="240"/>

after update and recompilation

   svn update sw/ground_segment/cockpit/
sw/lib/ocaml/ sw/lib/ocaml/papget_renderer.mli && make

I noticed that clicking the plugin window will not exchange the map
and video windows like it does with the -mplayer option. Although
double clicking the video window will open the video in full screen.

Also, can the -plugin style video window be displayed as a papget?
