ok. Here are the steps required.
1) Download VLC and install. This is the link
chose the file vlc-0.8.6d-win32.exe.
2) Unzip the rar file in the first post to your Road runner directory. Edit the rrvlc.ini file to your requirements.
3) Add commands to you skin to use.
I've attached a sample skin for BMV2. It changes the video player button to load RR_VLC.skin. You will need to edit rr_vlc.skin to change the path to a suitable video file and then you can run it.
Please note this is just a test skin. You could use it for the buttons but obviously you dont want to edit the path to the movie everytime.
I will be releasing a Freedom Ultimate skin soon for this plugin.
Hope this helps. Any more questions just ask.

upspace & pdegameplayer
Reproduce the error here on a clean machine so looks like I'm missing some required files. Get back to you soon
The main reason for me was the idea of playing films for my kids in the back of the car and its what I'm used to using. Lastly it was just a bit of fun learning to code in vb6 and plugins for RR.
the same advantages you have on a desktop it plays anything!
