According to the FAQ, LM is not thread-safe, so all api-calls should
be made from the same thread. Be that as it may, you can integrate it
with a threaded framework applying the correct sync mechanisms and
sharing data structures to notify state-changes.
What I did was create a task to check this data structures and give it
to livemedia to run in the doEventLoop(), which I called from its own
It appears to work fine.
