Just an update on this... I tried adding the following lines to
projects/active/plugin.cpp before the call to libvlc_new();

ppsz_argv[ppsz_argc++] = "--extraintf=logger";
ppsz_argv[ppsz_argc++] = "--verbose=2";
ppsz_argv[ppsz_argc++] = "--file-logging";
ppsz_argv[ppsz_argc++] = "--logfile=c:\\vlc.log";

When I load up the plugin I get a dos window appearing but never get any
logging information appearing in it or the log. The browser also just sits
there and never actually shows any content. If I leave out my lines and
comment out the --ignore-config and then setup the vlcrc file for logging I
also get a dos window appearing. I still get no logging output but the
plugin does start showing video. I'm not convinced it's reading the vlcrc
file though.

I'm getting a little stumped on how to enable logging. How was the plugin
developed in the first place without being able to get any feedback whilst
it's running?
