2. Install Python 3.7 for Windows (https://www.python.org/downloads/release/python-374/). The Windows x86-64 MSI installer is fine. This is required in order to build the JavaScript engine, SpiderMonkey.

3. Install virtualenv.

In a normal Windows Shell (cmd.exe or "Command Prompt" from the start menu), do:
```
pip install virtualenv
```
If this does not work, you may need to reboot for the changed PATH settings (by the python installer) to take effect.

3. Install the most recent [GStreamer](https://gstreamer.freedesktop.org/data/pkg/windows/) MSVC development package following [these instructions](https://github.com/sdroege/gstreamer-rs#gstreamer-binaries-1). Note that the MinGW binaries will not work, so make sure that you install the MSVC the ones.
4. Install `pkg-config` either via [Chocolatey](https://chocolatey.org/install#installing-chocolatey)(`choco install pkgconfiglite`) or from [here](https://sourceforge.net/projects/pkgconfiglite/).

5. Install the most recent [GStreamer](https://gstreamer.freedesktop.org/data/pkg/windows/) MSVC packages. You need to download the two `.msi` files for your platform from the [GStreamer](https://gstreamer.freedesktop.org/data/pkg/windows/) website and install them. The currently recommended version is 1.16.0. i.e.:

- [gstreamer-1.0-msvc-x86_64-1.16.0.msi](https://gstreamer.freedesktop.org/data/pkg/windows/1.16.0/gstreamer-1.0-msvc-x86_64-1.16.0.msi)
- [gstreamer-1.0-devel-msvc-x86_64-1.16.0.msi](https://gstreamer.freedesktop.org/data/pkg/windows/1.16.0/gstreamer-1.0-devel-msvc-x86_64-1.16.0.msi)

Note that the MinGW binaries will not work, so make sure that you install the MSVC the ones.

Note that you should ensure that _all_ components are installed from gstreamer, as we require many of the optional libraries that are not installed by default.
