Official announcement of Songbird using GStreamer on all platforms

So Mikael Hallendal reported last week about SyncTV using GStreamer across Linux, MacOSX and Windows for their multimedia support. Well Songbird‘s Georges Auberger reports in his blog how they are now going to be using GStreamer as their multimedia engine on all platforms going forward. This has been brewing for some time now and the DirectShow/Windows and Quicktime/MacOSX integration plugins in GStreamer CVS are there thanks to Songbird. Another group using GStreamer on multiple platforms who I found thanks to the Songbird comments are Chameleo who are creating a video player/platform.

Songbird has been using GStreamer for a good while now on Linux of course so for those interested in testing it out I recommend heading over to the homepage and grab the latest build.
