Playing with GStreamer

I played around with GStreamer today to do what I wanted to do for a long time: encode the music from a music video DVD I bought as Ogg so that I can play it with my regular music player (Rhythmbox) as well as at home (my computer at home doesn’t have a DVD drive – can you believe that?)

Well, GStreamer is really cool. I used gst-editor to click me a pipeline that decoded the DVD and then encoded the audio stream using Ogg/Vorbis. Now if gst-editor would at least pretend to be stable and some of its usability would be ironed out, I would be really happy.
