   You need to add a module descriptor to this file, see for instance
modules/video_output/aa.c. It's not present in dummy/vout.c because of
the dummy/dummy.c common file. This is enough:

    set_description( _("SHM video output module") );
    set_capability( "video output", 10 );
    set_callbacks( Create, Destroy );

   Also, launch vlc with -v to see why it wasn't loaded. You'll probably
get a "undefined symbol: _vlc_entry__0_5_0_cvs" error.
