Macs with Apple Silicon

Thank you to all who replied. I think my first question remains
Has anyone tried using the current binary Mac build of GStreamer in
And, given that ARM builds are not a problem, will the binary Mac build
of GStreamer be built as universal binary in the future (when?). Apple
do indeed say that this is how it's done with frameworks, see
I don't yet have an Apple Silicon machine myself, but will let you know
when I try it.
