This is great news.

You have done way more than I did on that project, and I didn't had time
(Summer of Code...) to give you my broken code... :'(

Deactivate overlay if you want it.

Amarok for Windows guys are going to appreciate it a lot.

Just a random question, do you want it on its special project, or do you
want it in the projects/ in vlc Git source code, like mozilla, ActiveX
and MacOSX who are also wrappers around libvlc ? 
It might be easier then for maintainers and packagers, and to keep it up
to date with libvlc, but this shouldn't be any obligation.

Do you plan to need work on that this summer, and do you plan to need
help, because we have some students interested in the project.

Thanks for the work, I'll test it soon.

DidjCodt, when do you port this to Qtopia/WinCE ? :D
