I briefly tried this and can confirm. In my case, playback starts 
immediately, but the plugin makes VDR crash after half a song or so.

Stefan, IIRC one of the lock types you use in the playback code is not 
used in VDR itself. Maybe there is an error regarding NPT compatibility 
here which does not appear in VDR itself. Maybe I can find some time to 
track this down further.
