[pix_film] bug on windows - frame message ... #190

I lately came across a strange behaviour with the [pix_film] object, that only occurs on windows (tested it on OSX and LINUX as well). when sending an arbitrary non-consecutive frame number to its right inlet, the frame that is actually shown is the one BEFORE the last frame message.

i attached an example patch that demonstrates this behaviour. this is true for all codecs [pix_film] can load, (except for the mjpeg codec which displays the frames correctly !). on OSX and LINUX the tested movies files showed the correct frames.

most likely a bug in one of the decoder plugins (filmQT or filmDS).

to triage the problem, try disabling the plugin binaries (gem_film*.dll) by moving them out of the directory, and enable them selectively.

hi, did what you suggested.
so it must be the filmDS.dll plugin that introduces the error.
when i removed it, the "filmQT.dll" plugin loads the files and the frames are displayed correctly.
