John 'Spyder' Cannon started to look into this recently, but he couldnt 
build Gstreamer on Windows and thus started working with it on his Linux 
box IIRC. Could you guys commit your changes to Gstreamer CVS already ?

We are currently facing serious problems with compatibility issues of 
our DShow playback pack for matroska ( appr. 1.5 Mio downloads meanwhile 
), there are just too many codec packs and strange DShow filters out 
there coded by people who dont care at all about the DShow necessities, 
resulting in PCs which finally cant play a single video file anymore.

Gstreamer could be the solution to all the problems, once we manage it 
to work on Windows. Right now Steve is working on VLC, as the fastest 
way out of our current playback dilemma.
