I can't help noticing that, as usual, portability seems to be of no concern.
From the three software packages compared here, only gstreamer seems to make
an actual effort to run on platforms != Linux (it's the only one ported to
FreeBSD as of now, too). MAS at least states they want to be portable
(non-Linux development seems to be essentially not happening though) and NMM
is clearly focused on Linux.
