I' ve been programming Gtk  User Interfaces for one year and I'm very
familirar with Gtk libs. Also, for 6 months I've been programming a
multimedia player using Gstreamer for my Degree tesis project with metadata
support, visualisation support(goom), multichanel audio support, subtitles
support,snapshot support,etc..I think I can have a good multimedia player in
2 months as i have already made a good progress, i'll need one more week for
the GUI design and one more month for  developing the wrappers for at least
4 programming languages (java,c#,phyton and c++) witch will be in the GSOC
deadlines. I'm very motivated on this project and with your help I hope i'll
made a good work.I'm not talking about writting the definitive gstreamer
multimedia, as i'm not a GStreamer guru, but it will be a good start for a
project that will promote the use of GStreamer on multimedia applications..

Regards Andoni
