I'm confused... is GCC part of Mingw? I'm new to this environment (VC 
generation - man cannot choose in which era is born :( ). I just 
couldn't find definitions of KSPROPERTY in ks.h and ksmedia.h whose i 
believe are in the GCC package under windows. So, I had to add the 
structure definitions in a vlc header. But remaking MS headers 
definition by definition over time sounds like a hassle. Do you think MS 
will let us use headers? That will be a lot easier...
Anyway, you need me to send you the definitions I needed and were not in 
ks.h etc.? Will you include them in future release?

Best regards,
