Hi,

I like to watch DVDs when I go to sleep. When they end they usually return to the DVD menu, which endlessly loops and often results in a very annoying sound repeat (that never fails to wake me up). Would it be possible to implement a simple sleep timer so that the program will close after x amount of minutes? If this feature already exists in VLC or in a script, I have not been able to locate it.You can create your own script that kills VLC via telnet or RC after certain time.
