[theora-dev] Installing vp31vfw.dll - how?

My understanding is that it should be fine to install the .DLL with no
registry key at all.  It will create one when first invoked.

Problems will occur however if someone has an old version of VP3 that used
different reg keys.  That is highly unlikely but you should probably cover
it in a readme.  Any previous installation of VP3 should be removed.

Another alternative is to let the user install vp3 from
www.vp3.com/getvp3.  However note that the builds there may be a bit out
of date.
