Well, I based this on the libraries shown by lsof on my Firefox
processes while in a Hangout session. However, I've now noticed that
when I run Chrome (where things don't look any better), the same plugin
code gets used but none of the involved processes show gstreamer-related
libraries -- so perhaps I spoke too soon? I'll ask on the hangout forum.
(Obviously, if anyone knows details about what's driving Google's talk
plugin, feel free to email me off-list.)

However, let me start from the other end -- for cheese (3.10.2), for
example, it seems gstreamer 1.0 is involved (judging from a pldd on the
cheese process, which shows a ton of stuff below
/usr/lib64/gstreamer-1.0/) but I still can't seem to get the resolution
past 640x480. Is the resolution constraint a limit of this particular
cheese version, or can I do something to improve it?
