GStreamer :

- I m halfway done rewriting the X11 video plugins for GStreamer. Our goal is to have some ximage and xvimage plugins with some ranking system trying to use the best one available on the system. It's a tough job... Not really because of real coding but just because of some design issues, caps renegotiation looks buggy and it seems i will have to fix a lot of other plugins to get that working. I m also trying to implement interactivity catching events on video overlay and forwarding that upstream in the pipeline. That seems to be buggy too.. Oh dear, where will of that end up..

- The player is still broken, i don't want to fix until we arrive to a clear design on the video overlay interface. That would be useless time.

- thomasvs was here this week and he has been very lucky to find a flat that fast. I was a bit afraid it might take longer but everything seems to go problemless. We had a long and interesting discussion about the company i m about to create for GStreamer related projects. I think we both agree that this project is very interesting and that could be a big hit for the free software community. We still have to find a name for that company and build a website. I should start writing the business plan for it ASAP... Why are those days only 24 hours long .. ?

Home :

- I ordered a new Dell computer for my home use.. I hope that one will build GStreamer faster than my powerbook so that i can get things done quicker... Damn those 19" Flat panels look awesome.

- My 2 little dogs are doing just fine but i m a bit annoyed that they try to play with everything they find in the garden such as lights and water irrigation system :-(

- Next week i ll go to France to train one of my new employees and i will enjoy that time to meet some friends and family there. Barcelona is not that far but still you tend to loose contact with a lot of people.
