i've heard that you need framebuffer to display the video on the screen. 
 will i have  a problem with that if i implement video player using 
gstreamer on iPAQ?
i don't have experience yet on video programming and minimal on 
streaming. please advise me which modules/libraries/topics do i need to 
understand first.
thank you very much in advance
