Thanks Pierre,
  I was able to get it down to 3.2MB from 13+MB. No more stalls and downloads much faster.
  The reason it was 3.2 rather than 1MB was the ffmpeg.dll was over 4MB and I built it with debug disabled. Also libvlc.dll is also 1.8MB so I was happy to get down to 3.2 after the files were compressed and put into a jar.
  Also, the time to instantiate is still around 17 seconds using a centrino dual and slightly faster for my AMD64 X2 4200+ using windows XP and windows 2000 prof respectively. So even though the size was decreased by 4x the time savings was minimal for instantiating vlc but the download time was improved greatly and users should know longer mention stalling while downloading the jar with the vlc dlls.
  Many Thanks,

Hello Tony,

Basically you need:
- ffmpeg with support for the codec/demuxer you want.
- the ffmpeg vlc module.
- a video output module,
- a sound output module.
- a chroma module
- audio filter, mixer, sampler module
- some access module like file and http.

You may reach something aroung the MB for the binaries, if you strip 
the debug code.

Good luck,
