What does not
installer crashes during installation with:
"1628: Failed to complete installation."
What was not tested
everything beside the installer
Tried to install like described in the HOWTO and several other combinations. Nothing worked.
I didn't try to build wine myself like described here: http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=17971#c0
* In compare to Wine version 1.1.23 the error "1628: Failed to complete installation." happens during installation and it seems like everything gets installed - but at the end SlingPlayer 1.5.1 is unable to start saying, that is misses some "localized resources"
* there was no difference with or without using native qcap & quartz
Copy a native 32-bit qcap.dll to ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32
Add a native override for qcap to winecfg.
Install SlingPlayer as normal.
Run echo disabled > ~/.wine/.update-timestamp
You should now have a working SlingPlayer!

1. The UI is slow compared to Windows. Slow-double-click removes the UI and it much more responsive. It's still a lot faster than it used to be but it might be worth opening a performance bug for that.
2. The video locks up when resizing. Resizing again will unlock it. Seems random so it's just luck.
