If they were really serious about their efforts to set a foot into the

GStreamer.
I've even offered to write those plugins for them, for free (see the
GNOME d-d-l archives)! The whole GNOME and KDE desktop would suddenly
play realmedia files.

Yes - that would be nice.
I'm hoping for the day (it doesn't look like it's coming anytime soon) when Apple releases a fairplay plugin for GStreamer so that I don't have to jump through hoops to play iTMS songs in Linux.


I like the iTMS music store, I'm not a huge customer, but I've spent about $200 there since the Windows launch, and I would buy more if I could play the songs in Linux (the OS I use 95+% of the time) without needing a burn/re-rip.

I'm hoping for the day when divx.com releases a plugin that lets me play rented divx movies in Totem - already the GStreamer plugin for divx is quite good, The HD divx movie trailers play smoother for me in totem than they do on the same hardware in Windows. That may be more likely to happen, divx seems at least somewhat friendly to linux, with free periodic releases of their library including header files needed for developers.
