Hi All,

I am debugging crashing using the dlls & JVLC. I am now able to get debug output and notices several things that might be issues for all bindings users.

1. I noticed if one includes just dlls then the vlc code will not find the lua scripts. I have had to write an equivalent for my java code for just the youtube videos and it works. The question is can I specify a path for vlc to look for lua scripts rather than it guessing and not finding them? If not can I disable vlc from looking for the lua scripts?

2. I am getting alot of these warnings what do they mean? Is there anything I can do to fix it? "freetype warning: unbreakable string"

3. Also for bindings in general it is needed to know the defaults for vlc so it can be sent as options. I only say that because it seems like sometimes vlc forgets what it has for options so resetting them when an instance of vlc is created is probably something all bindings developers should do. The output I have seen in the CLI bindings emails indicates what looks like build options and not runtime default options. Is there a way to get a list of the default other than the wiki in case it is not totally up to date?

That is it for now. I am going to keep running tests to see if I can catch anything else.
