This is non-official, but I've been working with libjingle for a few  
weeks and chatting to the devs, so this is my reading.

libjingle itself will work fine on windows.
The example MediaEngine, implemented using Linphone's MediaStreamer  
will not.
Although libjingle contacts the code used by the GT client, they use  
another audio stack, not the example code given here.
There exists a windows port of mediastreamer but I do not believe  
libjingle has been compiled using it yet. If you do get it working,  
please share, because we currently have only a linux implementation.
