I would like WinCairo to have video enabled, also, but it would take some

his code needs to be updated.  I got it compiling a few days ago, but
something was wrong with my GStreamer installation.

Here's Phillippe's branch:

If anyone wants to look at my updated code, let me know and I'll email a
diff off of the webkit-dev list.
