You'll probably want to use the trunk sources. Instructions for fetching
are at:

      It's strange...I download serveral source code packages released,
      such as gnash-0.8.1,0.8.2,0.8.3, 0.8.4, there is only one plugin.h
      under directory plugin/, and this head file is for unix, not for
      win32. I check directory plugin/win32, there is only a plugin.cpp, no
      corresponding plugin.h for win32.
but soon I find this site,
it seems a http code repository for gnash, there are five source code files
under plugin/win32, including the missing plugin.h that released  source
code packages do not contain. May be these files do not be copied from
trunk to released version by mistake?

I will try them immediately.

Unfortunately, none of the GUIs work with -x on Win32.  That's why I
started work on plugin/win32, creating a native npgnash.dll plugin
Mozilla that embeds VM in-process.

I'm not sure why cao wei can't build the plugin/win32 directory: it
builds just fine on the buildbot Win2003 slave ... ?
