Actually as far as i know gstreamer is made to serve this kind of apps :) so i
think yes.
It would be a nice testbed as well give it a try ruben :) check out gstreamer
docs and stuff :) and start building on it !

Think omega / others would be verry delighted.

For sure :) how more people work together on it how faster things develop! if
you ask me it would be great !!!
Gstreamer also hasn't this much plugins yet and since you are making a video
editing thingy i can assume you will also
code some effect plugins :).

Gstreamer is under heavy development for sure.. in a short time 3 people will
work on it fulltime so it will get there for sure..
If you ask me start exploring and building on it! :)
