Jan just demoed trick modes on his machine using GStreamer. Trick modes in the term used for stuff like double speed, quadruple speed, half speed, backwards play etc. playback. A little code cleanup is still needed before comitting, but it will be in GStreamer CVS next week.
The initial goal is supporting server side trickmode properly like when getting a video feed from a ViiV enabled server, but it already supports some modes of client side trickmodes too.
Along with the recently added Quality of Service framework and network clocks we are adding a lot of advanced functionality to GStreamer these days.
Edward and Wim also did some critical fixes in GStreamer and GNonlin today for Jokosher, to help ensure that the Jokosher team will be able to demo a working application at GUADEC.
Google Summer of code deadline is approaching fast (monday morning) and we still have room for more students to propose GStreamer related projects under the GNOME, Xiph or BBC banners. Be sure to check out these projects ideas lists and submit a proposal. Probably other projects also stil open to more proposals, but I am not mentoring those so I don’t know their status.
