Please note that the gettext utilities are not included in the default
MSYS/MINGW packages so you won't be able to build VLC with i18n support.
- natively on Windows, using Microsoft Visual C++. Even though we provide some
msvc project files with vlc, this method is advised only if you just want to
experiment/play with some basic functionality in vlc. The reason for this
is that vlc depends on a lot of 3rd party libraries and building them in
MSVC is not convenient and sometimes even impossible.
