I agree. There is way too much forking in the linux community and too many
project reinventing the wheel. Take a look at media players. There are about 30
of them out there and they are all (no offense) half ass. I personally believe
GStreamer is going to be the multimedia future for linux and it's been well
planned from ground up on being just that. Like it or not, it's probably going
to be the future. Instead of everyone working on the same type of project under
different names, it would be better for everyone to adopt one and focus all
efforts on it. GStreamer has support for plugins and has already had quite a
few written for it. It would be in everyone's interest to have GStreamer be the
backbone of all media playback regardless if it's mpeg, avi, dvd, etc..... Come
on people now, smile on your brother everybody get together. Anyway, that's my
two cents.
