Yes, sorry, you are right I'm  xcompiling and I'm
using  vlc 0.7.1.
Besides I'm working on a project for developing an
embedded multimedia portable device so I'm interested
in making qte module work right though I'm not a good
programer I'll send any changes I make for qte module
to work in this platform wich is using an arm
processor an a 800x600 display. By the way could you
point any file a shoulf start to solve the prolem I
stated in my previous e-mail? Thank you.
