currently all buffers have a timestamp attached to them which can be
used to sync the muxing
process. Buffers can contain anything from video frames to audio

again no problem with our current infrastructure.

You might want to check out a few example programs to transcode various
media types, all
there are a few sample capture programs too:
vidcapture (v4l to mjpeg)
vidcapture2 (v4l to DivX :-))
They used to work at some point in the past, I didn't try them lately so
they might not
We are currently working on an infrastructure that will allow accurate
seeking, which I believe
is something you will need too.
A new infrastructure for typing the pads (to ensure every element is
talking about the same
media types) is being constructed.
