Hi Andrew,

The description should be written in a few days. I will put screenshots 
with the explanation of how it works.
Actually I sort of plugged an OpenGL interface to the existing VIC, 
adding a new button in the tcl interface that launches it, and adding a 
function to each decoder and rtp source to get each source's video 
stream and other useful data to transmit to the OpenGL interface.
