I solved the problem by using both poppler-cpp for the rendering, and 
poppler-glib for the rest. It is not perfect because I have to open the 
pdf document twice, to create the page object at each rendering. But at 
least it works.

As for microsoft, I remember having in the past examples in their 
DirectX documentation that didn't work at all. :-) But it was in times 
when playing a video successfully was near a miracle.
