Most likely you need to specifiy which media player to use. For example,
to use GStreamer you would define WTF_USE_GSTREAMER. I don't see a
DirectShow media player, so GStreamer is probably your best bet.

You can look through the players by looking at file starting with
"MediaPlayerPrivate", for example:

  * AV Foundation (Mac)
  * Blackberry
  * GStreamer
  * QTKit (QuickTime?)
  * WinCE
