Good day yesterday with GNOME2 out. YAY!! Now all I need to do is make sure all the patches that I want see go in, that has piled up during the freeze for 2.0, go in now
On the GStreamer front thomasvs also managed to fix one of our two schedulers to make it work for ‘everyone’. This means we are now ready I think to do GStreamer 0.4.0.
Been using Rhythmbox extensivly for the last few days and it is definetly stable enough as a demo app, even if functionality is still not where it was before the latest GUI rewrite. Cool thing is that steveb have fixed the gstvideowidget used by gst-player so implementing Vizualisation plugins in Rhythmbox should now be easy.
People are reporting that gst-player works well, but it has some issues with its disting and me having taken a solemn oath to only use rpms with GStreamer (in order to catch a lot of build issues as they occur have not been able to get it working. Hope to get it packaged soon, and I am wondering if we should release it under the name ‘GNOME Media Player’ instead of gst-player. In the GNOME2 menu it is just called Media Player so I think this is fitting.
wingo has been working hard on the gst-editor, our GUI pipeline editor. He has been making some nifty screenshots and claim stuff is working, but I just get tons of warnings :), hopefully I will discover what the issue is there and get it fixed.
Another cool development I learned of yesterday is Wim Taymans who is making a video-wall plugin (enabling stuff like those big screens at shopping-malls where there are big screens consisting of many smaller screens.)
