Hi guys --
There's been really a lot of talk lately about the future of GStreamer in KDE.
It's been pretty clear that it's been gaining mindshare in both the KDE
community at large and specifically with the multimedia developers.
I'll be working next weekend to update the GStreamer bindings to 0.8, but I
think this may not be necessary.
I'd like to propose that GStreamer be ported from glib over to Qt / C++, but
keep the name GStreamer. I think this would provide a base that would
appease both the GNOME and KDE communities -- by having the name GStreamer
and a group of GNOME developers active in its development it would fit
comfortably within the ranks of GNOME software, but by using Qt / C++ it
would be able to take advantage of the advantages of C++ for object oriented
development while working within a stable and comfortable object framework.
Benjamin seems particularly enthusiastic and has already taken the initiative
to start by working on kiosrc and seems to be very pleased with the ease of
development in a Qt-based framework. I've been helping out and I think
within a few days we'll have a pretty good example of the direction that such
a port would take us.
Anyone who has begun to think, places some portion of the world in jeopardy.
