OpenCV 3rd Party static libs #7

For a project I wanted to capture Logitech c922 via OpenCV inside libcinder. Adding the "videoio" headers I encountered many linking errors, it took me a while to realize that the 3rd party libs (libjpeg, libjasper, libtiff, libpng etc.) which were needed for webcam stream decoding in my case, are not available in the block's folders . Had to rebuild OpenCV to be able to copy the 3rd party libs and include them in my project.
This is not an issue per se but made some delays in my work so I wanted to check if there are any workarounds for novice people like me not to get lost. I know the whole of 3rd party libs are pretty hefty in size specially when considering keeping different configurations together (x86 and x64 , debug and release), so maybe a note somewhere telling people that they need to have them for some features will suffice? If you'd rather add the libs to the block I have a recent build and can make a PR for that.
