It does not work either under Linux. I have to use set_parent() :/

I told you about get_meta() that was not working. I don't know if it
is vlc fixes or mine but it seems to work now.

The real feature that blocks me now is to load informations from
media_descriptor without having to play the file.
Like a load_media_descriptor() function and then I can use get_meta(),
get_duration() and stuffs.
I guess it is not simple to implement and I'm not good enough with vlc
core source code :/
Or somebody can tell me where I have to look so I can try...

Provide the code to load libvlc-control.so/.dll at runtime?
It's here (sourceforge svn) but it depends on C++/Qt + it is not the
clean way to go (it's better to provide .lib/.dll/.pdb if possible).

Another question
I saw a CMake support in extras dir, what is the state? (I like very
much CMake :p)
