I put the gstreamer mailing list in CC. I suggest that you subscribe
there and discuss the proposal there too. We can also talk on irc
about this. If you look at http://gstreamer.freedesktop.org/apps/ you
can see that most applications are media-players. Your brief proposal
describes a nice tool that we don't have in this form. There are some
tools already for subtasks, but some of those seems to be not that
active. Some examples
convert sounds : Sound Converter
convert to ogg files : OggConvert
There is also GEntrans targetting transcoding.
I definitely encourage you to write a proposal. As this is an
extensive project I recommend that you structure the features into
iterations (basic features, addition #1 (e.g. audio related), addition
#2 (e.g. video related)). I hope you also plan to work on this beyond
