This patch allow mplayer to use WMP11's multi-threaded DMO decoder for WMV1/WMV2/WMV3/VC1. One needs to install WMP11 or just copy wmvdecod.dll to your C:\windows\system32 or codec path.

Seems pointless to me, multithreading will not work on Linux and on
Windows MPlayer should be able to use the installed versions...
