I tested it on Windows. Media library is back in working condition.

Just a cosmetic thing : The full URI of items is displayed in the
playlist, instead of a short filename. The culprit is
"input_item_SetURI()" in src/input/item.c that still uses DIR_SEP_CHAR. 

Maybe, For Windows, first testing against '/' then DIR_SEP_CHAR could
ensure the filename(without path) is displayed in all situations ?
