Hi Manuel,

I'm a researcher and senior PhD student in the computer Science department
at the University of Saskatchewan.  We’re currently working on a large open
source project called opencast (www.opencastproject.org) which looks to
record academic lectures and broadcast them back to students.  We use
gstreamer for some of this, also ffmpeg/etc.  One of the partner
organizations in this is Vigo University, so your email caught my eye.  The
people working with us (on cc) I'm sure would be interested in talking to
you about how you could get involved in the gstreamer aspects of this
project if you, or others in GTI, are interested.  The project has broad
appeal and we're looking at potentially hundreds of deployments across the
world over the next year and a half or so.

Lots of our work is at the Java level using the Java-gstreamer bindings, but
we have some hardware with particular issues that we've been playing around
with patching (or patching the gstreamer sources).  I'm the current managing
individual for the portion of the project (the "capture agent") that uses
gstreamer, so if you would like to talk you're welcome to join in our weekly
