module_t* vlc_module_load ( struct vlc_logger log,
const char *  capability,
const char *  name,
bool  strict,
vlc_activate_t  probe,
  ... 
)

Finds and instantiates the best module of a certain type.

All candidates modules having the specified capability and name will be sorted in decreasing order of priority. Then the probe callback will be invoked for each module, until it succeeds (returns 0), or all candidate module failed to initialize.

The probe callback first parameter is the address of the module entry point. Further parameters are passed as an argument list; it corresponds to the variable arguments passed to this function. This scheme is meant to support arbitrary prototypes for the module entry point.

Parameters
loglogger for debugging (or NULL to ignore)
capabilitycapability, i.e. class of module
namename of the module asked, if any
strictif true, do not fallback to plugin with a different name but the same capability
probemodule probe callback
Returns
the module or NULL in case of a failure
