If it's any comfort, I've been running d3dvideosink in software that runs 16+ videos simultaneously. Most running it don't use that many at once, but the software supports it. Most do 5-10. But again, it's been running for months with no problems. But you should probably be using autovideosink so gstreamer can choose the best sink to use. If you use autovideosink and d3dvideosink isn't able to initialize for some reason, it should fall back to dshowvideosink.
