Hi all,

The next release of Wine will include a commit which changes our
winegstreamer dshow module to use the modern gstreamer 1.0 API instead
of the long-deprecated gstreamer 0.10 API. dshow is used by some games
and applications, including Microsoft Office, to display videos and
play audio. Wine's winegstreamer allows applications that use dshow to
support a wide variety of media through gstreamer.

winegstreamer has been broken for a long time (see Bug 30557), and
many distros disable the DLL when shipping Wine. If your distro
provides 32-bit gstreamer libraries, then you can now re-enable
winegstreamer and expect it to work.
