First off, I started with this. The problem was (is) that after 
compiling I read in the FAQ file inside bindings/java that it only
works on linux and not on win32. That is why I droped it an got the 
binary package instead.

In file vlc-libvlc-jni.cc there is a commented line:
 sprintf( (char*) argv[0], "%s", "jvlc");

if instead of "jvlc" I give the absolute path to vlc.exe, it should work 
you think? Or is there something else I must do?
