Hello. As a note, dvdread if compiled using mingw or cross compiled
for windows, seems to fail with all sorts of failure messages.
This patch (from the vlc team , thanks!) seems necessary there:
I'm not sure if it affects other OS's or not. I "think" the problem
stems from gcc packing structures differently with 4.7+ though I'm not
certain  . All I really know is that, for windows with gcc 4.8, it
fails without this patch and works with it.
Thank you, thought I'd mention it since there was a recent call for
apparently -mms-bitfields became default with gcc 4.7
