videotimeline+xjadeo running at the same time as a blender session.
The question I have is how difficult would it be to make the timeline
auto refresh when changes are made to the video file from an external
I realise it is an awkward issue but I do see some potential for making
peoples lives easier if this case is handled gracefully.
So does the timeline autorefresh or is that something that is on/off the

this would be.
In terms of usability for non technical types I see it as a no brainer
but in terms of implementation hassles I'm not sure of the requirements.
