I've tried compiling your tarball, but failed due to some Makefile.am
variables that seem to be wrong to me.
So I want to ask two things:
a) would you be willing to check out gst-template module from cvs, and use
the gst-plugin template directory as the build structure ? If you want, I
can do this part for you so that is out of the way.
It makes it easier to build against both 0.6 and 0.7 and does some other
things in a standard way so anyone is able to compile it.
b) to the list in general; would it be a good idea to make a module in cvs
in which to co-develop new plugins like this one ? We could call it
"sandbox" for example, and make one directory for each plug-in we are
developing, and make each directory have it's own autogen.sh script.
In this sandbox module, people can co-develop plugins, help each other
out, and generally mature and finish the plugins until they work basically
and can be added to gst-plugins if wanted.
