Opencv 3.0.0 build winder Windows 8 with Gstreamer1.0 support


I'm trying to build application which uses gstreamer as videoinput; GStreamer 1.0 support is included in opencv 3.0.0. Im using smake to build sources for Visual Studio 2013 compiler... but cmake could not generate sources wirh GStreamer 1.0 support properly:

Video I/O:

In CmakeLists.txt the following line exists:


so gStreamer1.0 is supported only under UNIX. Why? if I simply remove windows from "blacklist" cmake will not find gstreamer libs. But I have gstreamer1.0 and gstreamer1.0-dev packages installed.

Is there any way to build OpenCV with Gstreamer1.0 support under Windows? Maybe is there any way to grab opencv from gstreamer pipline? OpenCV with Gstreamer1.0 support has current functionality out-of-the-box by useinf

cv::VideoCapture cap("videotestsrc ! videconvert ! appsink")

Why OpenCV prebuilt binaries for Windows does not have GStreamer support! Please help!
