I'm working with Andrés Colubri to create a GStreamer installer for
Windows based on OAbuild with full codec support. We introduced some
changes to the OAbuild project and, actually, our binaries have support
for almost all the codecs. The changes we made:
·Compile ffmpeg with mingw/msys with full codec sopport
·Remove the ffmpeg project from OAbuild and include the new ffmpeg
libraries to the OAbuild's dependecies
·Remove the GLib project and link GStreamer to the GLib version provided
with the GTK+ win32 installer (this way GStreamer can be used in GTK
·Update liboil to a newer version to compile the volume plugin
·Change the ffmpeg plugin code to compile it using VS
·Change the qtdemux plugin code to compile it using VS
·Compile libmad for Windows and add the libraries to the GStreamer's
·Add the mad plugin to OAbuild
·Add the asfdemux plugin to OAbuild
·Remove the Direct Show wrapper and use the ffmepg plugin for all the
decoding stuff, which is much more efficient

We will soon publish a new branch in launchpad with all these changes
and a Windows installer.
