Guess this approach only works for GST 7.3 or later. Thought that the player
related code was broken (besides that, I can't get the gst-player 0.6-0
compiled here but of course I could figure out why or go with cvs). I ran
into quite some sorts of problems with 7.3 before and cvs didn't build with
me for several times a couple of weeks ago - 6.4 however runs just fine. No
way of doing it with the stable release ? or do I again miss something
And, are there some XOverlay related docs available somewhere or example
snippets? Can't find anything anywhere in the current api and similar docs.
