if possible I really suggest to compile vlc svn version in cygwin, 
following this tutorial:


On the configure line add: --enable-java-bindings . Then make install 
and java bindings in the bindings/java directory should work.

Anyway, if you want to use the jvlc binary package, you need to tell to 
jvlc where to find vlc (so it can find builtin modules and plugins). A 
user reported that you need to give fullpath to vlc.exe as argv[0] to 
libvlc_new(), but I couldn't check this because of a lack of a win32 
test machine.

I hope this helps,
