Line 503 of gstwaveformsink.c (data = (byte *) data + bytes_to_write;) may want to use "BYTE" instead of "byte".

    waveformsink: use 'guint8' instead of 'byte' to fix compilation with MSVC8
    We need a cast here for pointer arithmetic to work correctly, but some
    MSVC versions don't seem to like 'byte', so use guint8 here. Hopefully
    fixes #585361.
