I was thinking of this, but there were two reasons why I didn't do that:
1. I can't do Mac OS X nor Linux builds so I couldn't make sure compile and running would work (I don't want to do blind patches to system if I cannot do any testing on them).
2. There are also x11EventFilter and macEventFilter if someone wants to override events on x11 or or Mac systems. I don't know if anyone wants or needs those but code would IMHO look much better with those if this would be called QVLCApplication (at least commented out versions of those EventFilters). And because I know nothing about x11 nor mac events, I didn't add those.
If you or someone else wants to make it better, go ahead. I just want less (complain) threads to Windows forum about this issue =)
