Im pretty sure the linux mplayer is being ported to windows, and im also
rather sure that they do have a working player for windows, atleast it
worked once. Not to ruin your work, but i think it would be a better idea to
get mplayer working, especially since it supports virtually all usable
formats. Quicktime, realmedia(video and audio), sørensen(i belive all of
them), wmv(all of them), mpeg1-2. divx, xvid, and some others.
Good work in the player :D looks nice.
