I guess the main reason why there isn't anything about the windows port
on gstreamer website is that none of the main developers know much about
the windows port (what is working/not working, where it is available
from, how to use it in a windows project, ...). If you work with Uraeus
or thomasvs to write news, doc, ... about the windows port, I'm sure
they'll gladly put whatever you provide them online.

Once again, most gstreamer developers don't use windows, so don't be
surprised if they don't talk much about it. Developers not using windows
will have a hard time helping out windows developers who want to use
gstreamer for windows for one... It would probably be more productive to
look for someone wanting to hack on windows gstreamer apps (ie someone
who gets a video and audio sink to work and who ports a simple gtk
player to windows) than to complain that the gstreamer developers
(mainly linux guys) don't care about windows ;)
