Nope, i guess spyder482 decided to fix them rather than filing a bug 
report ;-) ..... let see how he is coming along, diving through BBB's 
code, and making his way through the Linux dungeon ...

Hmmm ..... as much as i love the fact that Gstreamer has a matroska 
muxer while it doesnt have a MOV/MP4 muxer yet at a first glance, the 
more i feel we urgently need those if we want Gstreamer to be 
established as THE opensource multimedia framework.

I promise to talk to Jory again on IRC, today or tomorrow if i get hold 
of him, about a prerelease of what we have, as a first working version 
of a win32 version. I am convinced that we could attract a lot of other 
developers to contribute to the project, even from the Windows world, if 
we are successful to transport the message we have for it, and to give 
people an idea how beneficious a working platform like Gstreamer could 
be compared to DirectShow, as a rather closed, limited blackbox solution.

Lets see if i can motivate him to put some working binaries together, 
with some first ported plugins, so that we can launch them to a very 
small circle of devs on Doom9 and Hydrogenaudio .....
