Stream to a port on Windows

I am writing an application that needs to send a video stream out at a 
specific port.  It seems that the best option for completing this task 
is udpsink.  I am trying to do simple client/server pipelines right now 
for testing.

My server pipeline is - gst-launch videotestsrc ! udpsink port=1234

What would my client pipeline need to look like to receive the stream?

Also, after doing some research on this forum it seems that udpsink does 
not really work very well on Windows.  Are there any other better 
options than udpsink to stream to a port with gstreamer in Windows.

My application has to be able to accomplish this task to work, so any 
help is greatly appreciated!
