Bug Description

$ dvdstyler
dvdstyler: error while loading shared libraries: libwx_gtk2u_media-2.8.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

wxwidgets2.8 is just missing a b-d on libgstreamer-plugins-base0.10-dev and libgconf2-dev to fully enable mediactrl.

@ayan: will you upload that fix? It was assigned to me and began to work on it, and you then assigned it to you, so I'm not sure what to do.

(by the way, I was upgrading dvdstyler and was blocked by that same error: this is why I didn't answer to the bug report assigned to me)

As I want to upload dvdstyler before Feature Freeze and won't have time to do it next week, I will upload a fixed version. Sorry Ayan.
