A new version of the Advene software has been released (see below).
While we have been using gstreamer for a while, first on linux, then on
MacOS, it is the first release that uses gstreamer as video player on
all supported platforms (Linux, MacOS X, Windows). It would be nice to
have it added to the list of applications using gstreamer on the

Advene (Annotate Digital Video, Exchange on the NEt -
http://www.advene.org/ ) is an ongoing project in the LIRIS laboratory
at University Claude Bernard Lyon 1.

The cross-platform Advene application allows users to easily create
comments and analyses of video comments, through the definition of
time-aligned annotations and their mobilisation into
automatically-generated or user-written comment views (HTML documents).
Annotations can also be used to modify the rendition of the audiovisual
document, thus providing virtual montage, captioning, navigation...
capabilities. Users can exchange their comments/analyses in the form of
Advene packages, independently from the video itself.

Version 0.40 solves compatibility issues with recent software versions
(python2.6, gstreamer 0.10.22.). gstreamer is now the default player on
all platforms, VLC being an alternative. Various improvements in search
and annotation alignment have been integrated. A summarized change list
can be found in the changelog

Packages are provided for the Windows platform (through an installer),
MacOS X and the Debian GNU/Linux distribution.
