Be GNOME, my friend

This blog is about hacking, Igalia and maybe some personal opinions

About

I'm a Gnome Hacker working for Igalia and living in A Coruña, Galiza.

As you may know, some colleagues at Igalia are developing a framework to gather, browse and query multimedia sources called Grilo. Of course it is no replacement for GStreamer as it is at a much higher level and we are focusing in gathering, browsing and querying so far.

We were an important part of the main developers of MAFW, so in this case we are trying to learn from the mistakes and try to create a more useful and easy to use framework.

One of my first steps, as a test, will be creating a MAFW pluging for Grilo, so that we can have all sources managed by Grilo running on the Fremantle official media player (as soon as bug 9361 gets fixed) with the consequence of having integrated important and interesting features as Youtube, podcasts, Jamendo, Shoutcast and so on.

  1. Well done. I got it from http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?p=696275

    May I suggest some improvements? Like being able to remember the last position in filesystem; or, a way of searching youtube.

    Thanks for your work, again.
