I have never used your contrib binaries.
I have dropped mingw32 long time ago since used mingw-w64, all is good 
with very good support from the project, a multilib compiler.
Like I've already emphasized projectM *simply works* with very minor 
tweaks as well as fluidsynth.

All this is based on my own build scripts as I do not use the scripts in 
extras dir in vlc.git source.
I have been doing this for years in testing since 0.8 series.
In particular no body (at least not from me) asked for new contrib, and 
this binary I can not use and will not use since I had a totally 
different compiler toolchain setup which doesn't use mingw32api and 
mingwrt at all.

Jean-Baptiste truly IMO I think, "You know what? You *suck*."
