It'd be great if someone who's had success installing it on windows re-wrote
the instructions on Mr Tickle's web site, as I think it's a bit unlikely
anyone would be able to install if they followed the present instructions.
I've now given up twice.. but am just about to have third go as i think the
following lines might be the final missing link for me:

"Dragging the mplayer.exe, codecs and the Windows
Essential codecs out of their subdirectories into the multi-thread directory
made it work."

So far I've only dragged mplayer.exe into the multithread directory.
At thebe moment for me the plugin looks like it is playing but there is no
sound.
