[gst-devel] Problem with KSVideo and viewing a Capture Device

I'm trying to build a pipeline with gst-launch in Windows 7 that will view a
stream from a VC500 Video Capture device (Captures composite video and
inputs to computer via USB). I think my biggest issue here is the fact that
it MUST be done in Windows. I'm finding a lot of the plugins for
gstreamer-java are supported in Linux instead of Windows. So I'm having
issues finding the element and syntax to get this working. Any help would be
greatly appreciated. Another thing is I don't have to use the gstreamer
framework for this, it just seems to be the easiest. If anyone knows another
good media framework with good Java bindings that might be better let me
know? Haha. (Tried DirectShow, VLCJ, neither are very stable for Java.)
Thanks a lot. Brayden

EDIT: From more reading I'm pretty sure the element I need here is

So I've been trying: 'gst-launch -v ksvideosrc ! autovideosink'

But I get:

'ERROR: from element /GSTPipeline:pipeline0/GstKsVideoSrc:ksvideosrc0: could
not start capture Additional debug info:
gst_ks_video_src_create ():
/GstPipeline:pipeline0/GstKsVideoSrc:ksvideosrc0:failed to change pin state
to KSSTATE_RUN Execution ended after 1000000 ns.'
