Has anyone out there compiled the ActiveX plugin recently?  I'm sure it's
been a while since as j-b says normally there is no reason to do this, but I
would really like to be able to run a version I've compiled and the "real"
VLC side by side on the same system.  If there is a way to do this without
compiling the plugin I'm open to that as well.

Thanks again.
