   Hello,

VLC checks whether the standard output is a terminal. I find it pretty
damn idiotic for emacs to emulate a terminal but, not quite. It might as
well use a pipe or a local socket pair then. Unless someone can point to a
simple function in libc to check whether ANSI color or ANSI control codes
are supported, I am not going to fix this upstream. I cannot find any
standard and simple way to hit termcap or terminfo for that purpose.

Note that you can turn off colors with:
# vlc -H --nocolor
or
# vlc -H| cat

Best regards,
