unfortunately i noticed that this feature what i was mentioning is  
already implemented in linux distrubution of VLC player. So i was made  
to implement it for windows version of VLC.
Now I have problem with compilation. Could you help me with it? I have  
tried to find solution on wiki and asked users on videolan IRC as well.
I went through this whole site, but im stack at packaging VLC.
When i use "make package-win-common" command, command line works on it  
forfew minutes and than replies this:

touch package-win-install
make: *** No rule to make target 'build npapi', needed by  

Thank you very much for answer
Have a nice day
