I am not a designer but I would somehow wonder if they would consider
this a good user-interface design.

Does this use gstreamer? In general, is the application using gstreamer
as de-facto standard for webcams in Linux/GNOME?

Those should be displayed in the shell directly I guess (and in fallback
mode somehow).

In general, shouldn't we consider to split the application into
front-end-configuration and a backend process so that the UI doesn't
have to be cross-platform (which is always a compromise) and we can
still benefit from all the details done in the backend.
