Have a look at the gstreamer-winbuilds at
to get visual studio versions of all the glib (and others, including
gstreamer if you want to support vv) dlls, with debug symbols.

I was working with that guy to get farsight2 dlls and gstreamer dlls
organised to get Pidgin-vv to work on windows, but need to check out a
newer version of pidgin 2.6.0 than the tarball that I had to see if it
works with that.
