Great to hear you're continuing your work on Win32 sinks. However, you
should be aware that in current 0.8, MinGW builds of most plugins aren't
usable, due to the way library dependencies are done (gst depends on
unresolved symbols, that works with POSIX, but win32 refuses to work).
It has been corrected in 0.9, and would be also possible to do in 0.8,
however the amount of maintenance work has stopped anyone from doing
that so far. So if you choose MinGW as your devel environment, you
should prepare for some pain.
MSVC builds don't have that problem, as they are built in a completely
different way.
