'invalid QuickTimeDLL': someone needs to put QTMLClient.dll from the codec
packages into windows/system dir
if it isn't there. I will change this later to load it from codecs dir, too.
Maybe he also needs to install Quicktimeplayer,
dunno if it works only with the codecs from mphq.

RealVideo and buggy image: please upload a sample and maybe a screenshot.

If the core agrees that we should go this step,
I could write down the differences and some other hints...

I am working on a simple and not eye-candy one, but the interface that
controls mplayer
via slave mode will be independend. Therefore it should be easy to code
something skinable.
Don't expect it soon, the next weeks are full of tests.
