You'll need to be more verbose :) What sort of caching are you doing
that could not be implemented through GStreamer ? Same for peak levels -
I even have plug-ins that do that.

Again. What are you doing to jump around at will ? Why could this not
be done through plugins that map streams to temp disk storage ? Sounds
like a useful thing to have in GStreamer for NLE's.

I'm not saying it is, but I'm pretty sure there are more things that
marlin claims it can only handle through custom code that could be moved
