[gst-devel] Is gstreamer what I need?

BTW, if it would help, I can post a $2000 bounty on a wxPython 
application that demonstrates the functionality listed below by May 1, 
2007.  The result would be open source.  If you are interested, I can 
provide you with a simple wxPython demo application that displays video 
from a frame buffer connected to VideoCapture (a Windows-only webcam 
capture library).  My wxPython demo app could easily be made to display 
any flat RGB frame buffer, so you don't need to worry about GUI 
development.  If that schedule is a bit tight, we can negotiate a little.

Anyone interested?
