Since I've started working with GStreamer I had never tried it out on Windows and tonight I decided to try it out. Edward pointed me to the winbuilds and it took no more than pressing 'next' 4 or 5 times to have default applications (gst-launch, gst-inspect...) and lots of plugins. Easy enough.
That must be the reason it has been some time since I've heard complaints about installing/using GStreamer on Windows. I wonder if there are any other builds out there like these?
