I mentioned on IRC a while ago that the mozilla plug-in in the VLC 1.1 git  
win32 binaries from http://nightly.videolan.org/ crashes on WinXP (PIII)  

Microsoft VisualC++ Runtime Library

The application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual  
way. Please contact the application's support team for more information.

I tried with windbg to see what the problem is, but didn't figure out  
anything. All I could tell is that the crash happens right after the  
plug-in loads all the modules.

Well, I've been checking the builds all the time and the problem is still  
there in each build.  
for example.

I did find one extra thing just now. <embed  
type="application/x-vlc-plugin" src="" width="400" height="400"> will  
cause the crash, but removing src="" stops it from crashing.

Another way to make it crash is to just load a media file in the address  
field that invokes the plug-in.

It crashes in Firefox, Safari and Opera. The 1.0.x builds work fine though.

Are the 1.1 binaries built for a certain processor or something or do they  
require some runtime libs that I don't have?
