Wow... I didn't know there was already a porting of gStreamer under 
Wndows! I was just goint to propose it!

Yes... I think a good multimedia framework is really needed under 
Windows, and infact only a small part of the programmers actually 
releases  DirectShow versions of their codecs, or writes applications 
supporting DirectShow.
I'm working on two projects (the first one is musical, the second one is 
AV), and would really be able to write multiplaftorm applications (at 
least Linux and Windows), using GStreamer, GTK, etc...

I think the possibility of writing multiplatform multimedia 
applications, using completely open and free tecnologies as GStreamer, 
whould be a great thing for everyone...

Is there any website, etc..., where I can find informations about
