The 1.4.5 is the APIVERSION of VDR 1.4.7 , so the name is okay. The
"cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory" usually
means that some library the plugin is linked against is missing. You can
to see if any libraries are missing, though it seems unlikely in this case.
 I would've preferred using a completely separate numbering scheme
for the APIVERSION, unrelated to VDR version, so that this kind of
confusion could've been avoided.
