Big news, I have a first working version of an UNO component to handle
GStreamer from UNO code. This will allow using gstreamer features within UNO
framework such as macro but also Java, c++ or pyUNO programs.

This component has many advantages for it uses a free
multimedia framework, and provide an API. This API has to be extended and
doesn't give access to every GStreamer feature.

The component is described on my personnal website where you can download
the package to install as well as a sample Basic macro
playing an Ogg file.

Of course this is still under development, and may not work in some
cases. However, every feedback is welcome.

Many thanks to Laurent Godard who help me to debug and test the
