How to include the external libtorrent DLL in vlc (crosscompiled on ubuntu for win32)

Exxor asked
Last Modified: 2013-12-13
What I'm trying to do is make use of the libtorrent library in vlc. I'm confused about the general way of doing this.

What I figured out is:
-How to build a DLL from the libtorrent sourcecode
-How to crosscompile vlc on ubuntu for win32

What I'm confused about is:
-How to link against a DLL in vlc
-If there's anything else I need to do except linking against the DLL to get it to work?
-What kind of include statements to use in the vlc sourcecode to reference the libtorrent functions

What I would really like is some tutorial/overview/explenation of what the general idea is on how to accomplish something like this, because I feel like walking with a blindfold on.
