RELEASE: GStreamer Ugly Plug-ins 0.10.4 'Metal Molly'

This mail announces the release of GStreamer Ugly Plug-ins 0.10.4 'Metal Molly'.

GStreamer Ugly Plug-ins is a set of plug-ins that have good quality and correct
functionality, but distributing them might pose problems.  The license on
either the plug-ins or the supporting libraries might not be how we'd like. The
code might be widely known to present patent problems.


Release notes for GStreamer Ugly Plug-ins 0.10.4 "Metal Molly"

The GStreamer team is proud to announce a new release
in the 0.10.x stable series of the
GStreamer Ugly Plug-ins.

The 0.10.x series is a stable series targeted at end users.
It is not API or ABI compatible with the stable 0.8.x series.
It is, however, parallel installable with the 0.8.x series.

"When you have to shoot, shoot.  Don't talk."

There are times when the world needs a color between black and white.
Quality code to match the good's, but two-timing, backstabbing and ready to
sell your freedom down the river.  These plug-ins might have a patent noose
around their neck, or a lock-up license, or any other problem that makes you
think twice about shipping them.

We don't call them ugly because we like them less.  Does a mother love her
son less because he's not as pretty as the other ones ? No  - she commends

RELEASE: GStreamer Good Plug-ins 0.10.4 'Dear Leader'

This mail announces the release of GStreamer Good Plug-ins 0.10.4 'Dear Leader'.

GStreamer Good Plug-ins is a set of plug-ins that we consider to have good
quality code and correct functionality, under our preferred license (LGPL for
the plug-in code, LGPL or LGPL-compatible for the supporting library).


Release notes for GStreamer Good Plug-ins 0.10.4 "Dear Leader"

The GStreamer team is proud to announce a new release
in the 0.10.x stable series of the
GStreamer Good Plug-ins.

The 0.10.x series is a stable series targeted at end users.
It is not API or ABI compatible with the stable 0.8.x series.
It is, however, parallel installable with the 0.8.x series.

"Such ingratitude.  After all the times I've saved your life."

A collection of plug-ins you'd want to have right next to you on the
battlefield.  Shooting sharp and making no mistakes, these plug-ins have it
all: good looks, good code, and good licensing.  Documented and dressed up
in tests.  If you're looking for a role model to base your own plug-in on,
here it is.

If you find a plot hole or a badly lip-synced line of code in them,
let us know - it is a matter of honour for us to ensure Blondie doesn't look
like he's been walking 100 miles through the desert without water.

Internet TV streams

This list seems a bit dead, but the most relevant to what I am
suggesting.  If this is off topic, please direct me to the correct list.

I know that there was some discussion previously about having multiple
media players in GNOME, and if I recall Totem is the blessed player.
The problem is that Totem does not have the same capabilities as
Rhythmbox, which gives an easy way of organizing your music library and
Internet radio.  Rhythmbox does not handle video, so cannot be the only
multimedia player in GNOME.  With more TV streams appearing on the
Internet, a Rhythmbox interface for Totem would be amazing.  This would
allow you to organize your video files and streams.

Also, I don't know if Internet radio stations publish a program guide,
but this would be a nice feature for both sound and video.  Being able
to see what programs are coming up, and the ability to record them.

I want to sign off with a thanks to everyone who has made music and
video support in GNOME such a pleasure these days.
