Gstreamer on Windows - Python26.dll missing

No it doesn't need python at all. The SDK installs additional plugins that
are used for creating python plugins. Remove the SDK completely and re-run
gst-launch and it should work fine (no errors). If you still get errors, go
into the ossbuild installation directory, find the plugins, and just delete
the python plugins. Then go into your home directory and delete the gst
registry (e.g. C:\Users\<Username>\.gstreamer-0.10\registry.i686.bin) and
re-run gst-launch. Things should be cleared up now. :D

It's running GST-launch that causes the errors.  Does IT need Python.  Or is
it just the bindings?  

I've tried building using MingW and never could get it to work.  WAAAAYYYYY
to difficult to install.
