Today, I found out that if you use today's CVS of a lot of things, Cupid can display video from your DV cam as well. Of course, capture is far more interesting but, well, y'know, one thing at a time.
In other news, I'm said to have ported a plugin to the threading branch in GStreamer. It's not hard, which is good. I'll port some more plugins later this week. This branch may end up becoming GStreamer-1.0.
