I see, so it's sounding like to do this I'd need to have something more
akin to a VST host, that acts as an intermediatory and pumps the video
data from the linux application via a native plugin (.so), into a
winelib compiled program that executes the windows compiled plugin
(.dll) and the sends it back out again.
Probably beyond my skills right now, but thought it was worth seeing if
anyone had trodden a similar route already!
