What about my other point, though - the choppiness of the gst player? Is
that just because it's a development version, or is there something
inherent in the whole gst technique that imposes too much overhead to
have a smooth video stream?

I'm really interested in producing some video editing tools (something
like iMovie). I'd love to use the gstreamer libraries, but that will
only work if the performance is there to be had.

Is there anything I can do to get the player to play faster/smoother?
