Hello everybody.

The instructions to build vlc for win32 have been updated. You can find them 

The build process has been greatly simplified, so now you'll have no excuse 
not to try it out ;)

For instance, under cygwin (www.cygwin.com), all you have to do is:

1 - download the vlc source code (from cvs is usually better)

2 - download the pre-compiled 3rd party libraries package which is available 

3 - uncompress the package in your root directory (the libs will end-up in 

4 - build vlc with the following command:
  ./bootstrap && \
  CPPFLAGS=-I/usr/win32/include LDFLAGS=-L/usr/win32/lib \
  CC="gcc -mno-cygwin" CXX="g++ -mno-cygwin" \
  ./configure \
      --disable-sdl --disable-gtk \
      --with-included-gettext --enable-nls \
      --enable-mad \
      --enable-ffmpeg \
      --enable-dvdread --enable-dvdplay \
      --enable-faad \
      --enable-flac \
      --enable-theora \
      --with-wx-config-path=/usr/win32/bin \
      --with-skins-wx-config-path=/usr/win32/bin \
      --with-freetype-config-path=/usr/win32/bin \
      --enable-debug \
  && make

5 - you're done :)
