I guess Eugene has made a lot work on this to get this working
(DirectShow support is completely Eugenes work I guess)
Also I've myself added quite a lot of lines.

Then there were some updates from mplayer group and few ideas are taken
from Xine developers - and few things are still missing

Well I'm definitely not the person who would be fighting to death for
GPL/LGPL code - thus I'm completely unsure about this area - whoever
want to use this code for private project is dumb anyway :)
as there are still a lot of bugs...

So if you want to get some new names to your list:

Eugene Kuznetsov
Zdenek Kabelac
Arpad Gereoffy
Miguel Freitas
Mathew Kanner
Juergen Keil

Does anyone else feels he should be mentioned here as well ??

   `-              When in doubt, just blame the Euro. :)
