I am new to the LibVLC and I have tried to follow the little LibVLC
tutorial that can be found on the wiki. I use Windows XP and to make
things easier I have gotten the libraries from
(I have tried vlc-1.0.2-win32 too).

I get this error : "mpgatofixed32 debug: libmad error: bad
main_data_begin pointer" when I try to load a mp3 file with my little
test program. The source code I use can be found here :
http://pastebin.com/m7d3c58f4 and the log here :
http://pastebin.com/d3fff0004. The error disappears if I rename
libmpgatofixed32_plugin.dll to libmpgatofixed32_plugin.dll.bak.

It seems that the error happens with VLC too because I can see this in
the log : "mpgatofixed32 debug: libmad error: bad main_data_begin
pointer mpgatofixed32 debug: libmad error: bad main_data_begin
pointer". However VLC seems to deal with it because the stream is
played anyway.

I do not know if this error is important or not. What should I do ? Do
I just need not to care and delete the file or should I give you more
informations to get this error fixed ?


PS : I am not used to mailing-lists, I hope not to have done something wrong.
