[gst-devel] Ixion player on Windows

Hello Sebastien,

	sorry for the missing libraries, I was testing the binary on a
different box that my development one but it did not help to uncover the
missing dependency. I have uploaded a new version with the two libraries
added? Could You please test it?

	I do not know if we can find some common .dlls MinGW uses different
linking system than MSVC (one needs .dll.a in addition to .dll). Sadly,
I will not be able to work on the Windows in the near future. 

	I have also tried compiling GStreamer using Cygwin. It is much less
painful than using MinGW but the resulting binary is even less stable
than the one produced by MinGW (playing a movie reports several
Gst-CRITICAL-Warnings and player crashes). I do not know what to do, it
seems to me that the debugging of these problems is not a one weekend
project :(
