If you are open to it, I would love to help.  I don't know much C, but I do
know enough ASP, PHP, VB.net, python, et. al to get around.  I also tend to
be about thinking around difficult problems and efficiency issues.  I am
working with some guys at work on learning C and x86 ASM, so I will be more
code specific help in the long run.

On a side not, you mention plot availability, I assume the code looks for a
field (defined in the ui.xml file) with a certain name.  If not found the
data is skipped.  What would the name of the datafield be that the code is
looking for the the plot data? video_plot?
