Hi RTP'ers,
It is very cool to see so many people doing RTP stuff around GStreamer
these days. I thought it would be a good time to point out that the Xiph
draft specifications for Vorbis and Theora RTP is at state where work on
payloaders and depayloader for GStreamer could start. Remember for a lot
of Linux distributions shipping anything else would be hard/impossible
and having all our solutions support the Xiph formats is essential both
as a vehicle for promoting these formats, but also to give our projects
a way to ship without the need for patented formats.

So I hope some of you would be interested in starting hacking on writing
the Xiph payloader/depayloaders. Having an extra implementation of this
apart from the reference implementation is also important in regards to
getting approval of the spec form IETF.

The current drafts can be found here:
