Just a warning that there have been some recent concerns about code generation on gcc 4.9.x. You might consider using 4.8.x if it's available.

In case anyone wants to try to compile the VLC contribs on windows,
I've here attached all the changes that I had to make for a successful build.

I used MSYS2 with gcc-4.9.1, on a Windows XP (32bit).
VLC is git master of last week (ae192018e27bb10ebfb569d57f11caac5ecaf63e).
Cross-compilation for 64bit works as well.

For VLC itself no changes were necessary.

One thing I noticed, it seems not all of the contribs are compiled with optimization enabled.
Is this intentional, or did I miss something?
