For now, only CSIDL_MYPICTURES is used in vlc code
Music and Videos still point to homedir.

On msdn, things are not really clear when to use CSIDL_MYVIDEO and
CSIDL_MUSIC. ( see remarks at the bottom of
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb762181%28VS.85%29.aspx ), and
what happens if an unsupported csidl is used (if it just returns a NULL
path, it's easy to fall back on some other directories).

Also, this is now a deprecated way of doing things for Vista (backward
compatibility). Nothing is said for Windows7

Maybe, you have more insight in this matter .... help welcome !
