can anybody give me a short update on the status of the Windows port of 
Gstreamer ? Its essential for us to be able to release a first working 
binary of it, and as soon as possible, to show that there has been some 
progress on achieving our goals.

I dont expect a lot of functionality for it yet, if it can play or 
convert WAV into MP3, this would be enough for a start IMHO. There are 
dozens of Windows multimedia programmers who are still searching for a 
x-platform alternative to DirectShow, and i believe that the message 
that there is work being done on such an alternative, and completely 
opensource, would hit the development scene like a hammer !

Speaking of the timing, we shouldnt launch and publish WinStreamer in 
the summer break, so we either get this out before middle of July, or we 
spare it for beginning of September IMO.
