You should be using the win32 async code on Windows.  srsly.

>.< I just said don't say that. The reason I'm using pthreads is for ffmpeg. FFmpeg can use either pthreads or win32 threads. However, some programs only compile with pthreads support under mingw32 such as xvidcore, faac, and others, and If I compile FFmpeg with win32threads support and link it to a library with only pthreads support multi-threading becomes disabled for that external library. This means that if I set everything to use pthreads in order to make everything multithreaded.

So... could I please get some help, not a "don't do that" statement?

P.S. I've seen this error with x264 also when using pthreads under mingw. This might be mingw adding that. I'll have to look into that.
