Yup. We don't have all the pieces, but they are planned. I've done
similar work before, on the OGI pipeline from which this project sorta
spawned. We have a v4l capture element, and a v4l2 element isn't too much
harder. The codecs are the tricky bit, though we have a (untested) RTJPEG
encoder/decoder pair in the distribution. The videosink is decent, though
I think it needs to be gone over again and possibly restructured. From
there you just need a pair of network elements, and you're set.
If you're interested in coding up some of the necessary elements, make
sure you're on the gst-devel list, and if you have time, head on over to
irc.openprojects.net, #gstreamer, where we can give you some
pointers. We've got some documentation coming along nicely that will
help, including a Plugin Writer's Guide, and a nearly complete Application
