RE: access to media files on a LAN server

I'm not sure what you mean by blocking. In its current state it does prevent access to the murgaLua interface while the player is running....don't know if the player on mac is remaining open after the file is finished? If so, adding "&" at the end of the execute string might help (I don't think this works on windows).

I'm planning eventually to work out my trouble with sys.spawn to replace os.execute, so maybe that will help too.

The most recent version posted supports a config file ($HOME/.media.lua.cfg) where you can set the player variable, so you don't really need to change the script to do this, but I'll include the macos default in the next version. Is that path you're using a common one on mac? Also, does VLC on Mac use the --sub=filename option, or something else?
