GStreamer and Firefox = true?

Was just pointed to Chris Double’s blog entry about his work integrating GStreamer with the HTML5 media elements. Really great stuff Chris! I hope the linux distributions pick up these patches as soon as possible as it would be really sweet to have Firefox’s media handling integrated with the rest of the system.

And thanks to the MacOSX and Windows the nice Windows and MacOSX support in GStreamer maybe this could become a cross platform solution for Firefox.

good news, indeed!
BTW, GStreamer is also integrated in current WebKit versions…
