Phoronix: GStreamer 1.0 Is Coming; Here's The Plans
For those interested in GStreamer, the open-source multimedia framework commonly used by the GNOME desktop, is slowly working its way towards doing a 1.0 release...
I wish they'd create something for Gstreamer like DXVA for DirectX. It would speed up development for many applications. Maybe if it was already available, we would have had hardware decoding for flash by now.
Sorry for trolling. I thought d2kx was imlpying that VAAPI could/should replace GStreamer. It's more likely a feature request though.
