Hi All,

we finally succeeded to port Gstreamer to Windows, and natively ( not 
using mingw ), all the necessary mods are in the Gstreamer CVS already. 
Steve 'robux4' Lhomme, one of matroska's core developers, has gstreamer 
itself as well as about 60 plugins compiling with MSVC7. Not all plugins 
were tested so far, but generally its looking pretty good. Compiled 
Binaries available from here : http://mukoli.free.fr/gstreamer/

Our next goal is now to have working output sinks for video and audio, 
so that some devs could probably look into getting gst-player to work on 
Windows. Portaudio seems to be a very nice basement to stand on, also 
because we plan to port Gstreamer to other platforms in the future, like 
Mac OSX.

Do you guys feel Portaudio could be used for an audio output sink for 
Gstreamer ? If we start this, could we expect to get some support from 
your side maybe ?

Thanks for a short reply
