Not everybody, and you know it.. There have been at least two people
(and one other than my irrelevant self) who have spoken against it.

You've uncovered the heart of the problem. Steve keeps saying lavc's
valid C code does not work on MSVC, but he never says what the error
message is. Almost surely it's caused by him doing something stupid
(as we discovered with the previous example where he was including
lavc-internal headers in files interfacing with windows api...).
Steve, if you claim otherwise, tell us the damn error message rather
than just saying it's broken.
