I noticed that the gstreamer framework seems to take all my CPU when trying
to view a 32 MB DV file (which I captured from my mini-dv camcorder).  I am
using Python to load the DV file and play it.  My computer is a Pentium 4
with a 1.8 GHz CPU and 1 Gig of Ram.  I also get the same exact performance
using the Movie Player in Ubuntu 8.04 (which I'm assuming uses gstreamer

Any suggestions or tips for making the video playback smoothly?  If this is
a problem with gstreamer, any talks of improving the performance?  Just as a
reference, I used Kino to play the file, and it plays the file very

Thanks in advance!
