[gst-devel] Transcoding with gstreamer

Has anyone had any luck encoding video in any of the various standard formats 
with gstreamer? I can't seem to find an mpeg muxer, for example. Is this kind 
of thing expected to work?

And does anyone know why frequently when experimenting with a pipeline I 
frequently just get:

$ gst-launch-0.8 filesrc location=Neverending\ Story.xm ! mikmod ! tee ! 
osssink { queue ! goom ! spider ! xvimagesink }
RUNNING pipeline ...
ERROR: pipeline doesn't want to play.
Segmentation fault

This is using the Debian packages off Alioth (which seem to be missing 
gst-editor-0.8, BTW). AFAICT, the pipeline *looks* all right. If I take the 
queue out, it runs, but the documentation tells me that all threads must have 
a queue in them...
