I'm trying to build a music player by using PyQt and Phonon. I'm 
developing on Windows. On many computers I have problems with the 
included DirectShow Phonon backend. I would like to replace it with VLC 
backend. I found information that it should be available with VLC 1.1 
(which I have installed). On winkde.org I found a package with 
phonon_vlc.dll. I tried to put this file in 
..Python\Lib\site-packages\PyQt4\plugins\phonon_backend\ and removed the 
phonon_ds94.dll. But the sample music player that comes with PyQt 
complains it can't find any Phonon backend.

Could you please advice me how to setup Phonon VLC backend under 
Windows? Thank you!
