Encode into H264 on Windows (Has anyone been able to do this?)

I removed the registry file and deleted the entire OSSBuild folder of my 
old gstreamer, and then tried to run the install but I got the error 
that there is a different version of gstreamer still installed.  Is 
there another registry file I need to delete or something else I need to 
remove in order to install the new version?

Be sure and delete the registry file typically located in C:\Users\<Account>\.gstreamer-0.10\registry.i686.bin before running the new install. That just makes things much less complicated. At that point you can do something like:
> gst-launch filesrc location=test.mjpg ! multipartdemux ! jpegdec ! videorate ! video/x-raw-yuv, framerate=30/1 ! ffmpegcolorspace ! x264enc speed-preset=9 profile=2 ! qtmux ! filesink location=test.mov
