This is the binary that maps element names like videoconvert to the name 
of the library to load, here 
/usr/lib64/gstreamer-1.0/ Since it's a 64-bit 
binary (maybe a file would have been stronger proof), it cannot build 
the 32-bit registry.

This is the library that provides the videoconvert plugin and since it's 
a 64-bit library that means 32-bit processes cannot use it, 
winegstreamer included... unless it has some cross-process communication 
mechanism so that all GStreamer code in fact runs in a 64-bit process 
(that seems highly unlikely).

It looks like Blaz Blue Calamity Trigger has a 64-bit version. Could it 
be that's the one you're actually running?

If not, does its behavior change if you rename winegstreamer.dll so 
it's not used?

              All generalizations are false, including this one.
