[gst-devel] DV File CPU Usage?

Just a little more background:  I am attempting to put together a prototype
of a non-linear video editor using the gstreamer framework.  The .DV file
format is a very important format for home / consumer-level video editing.
I'm concerned that if the performance is no good on that format, then it
will impede the progress of all non-linear editors trying to use gstreamer.

Does anyone agree / disagree?
