Hi all, late into the game. :p Finally succeeded in building the Win32
MythTV bins (master branch) in Windows. But when I unzip the zip file
into c:\MythTV, start mythfrontend and try to watch a recording or any
video in media library, the app will crash and I see the following
error in the console:

2010-12-25 21:00:48.531 FilterManager, Error: Failed to load filter
library: 'C:/mythtv/lib/mythtv/filters/postprocess.dll'
			The specified module could not be found.
2010-12-25 21:00:48.532 FilterManager, Warning: Failed to load filter
library: C:/mythtv/lib/mythtv/filters/postprocess.dll

tried running mythfrontend inside a msys's bash and still gt the same
result, the file is there, but it still says module not found. Could
that be the reason for the crash?

Would appreciate any pointers. Thanks merry Christmas and a happy new
year to all.
