  1. Hello,

    I want to script a program to control VLC through remote control with a socket. In the preferences tab under interface I can set a directory to create a socket file, vlc.sock in my case. (see screenshot). This works perfectly on my old mac with os x 10.6.8, but on my newer mac with os x 10.10.3 no socket file appears.... Does anyone know why, and how I could fix this?

    Thank you very much!!

  2. Found the solution: it seemed like there was no file because in os x 10.10.3 the vlc.sock file is not visible, even with hidden files shown (probably because it is 0 bytes)
