I saw that mvcp-client has a counter, that constantly updates the frame number melted is currently displaying.

I could track down where about in the code this is done. As far as I can see, USTA commands are sent to melted. But I did not find any reference on how often per second!

If I send one USTA per millisecond to melted, is that a wise thing to do? Or might I flood some buffers in melted or get it distracted from its main operation?

Or is there an other way to get this information, some kind of command I would send and from there on, melted by itself would report to me its status on each new frame over the open tcp socket?!
