We don't have a plan written in stone, but for sure we have one in our
mind ;)

Our plan regarding that issue is:

a) Finish rygel-grilo, which will expose Grilo content in DBus, so other
applications can access it (see [1]). As you know, this program
implements a spec[2] that have been changed quite a lot during last
times, so everytime I was almost to finish the implementation, spec
changed. Hope that now it is more stable.

b) Rygel-grilo will come with a small library that will help to
implement both producers and consumers following spec[2]. Actually,
rygel-grilo is using this library to produce content. Next step will be
to write a 'consumer' plugin for Totem.

c) Unfortunately, we do not have too much resources to try to write
plugins for other applications. We prefer to focus more in improving
Grilo and left these plugins for contributors. As you know, we proposed
a couple of them in GNOME GSoC, which unfortunately nobody took. Anyway,
we hope that someone would interested in doing it (even maybe I might do
it if I have enough spare time ;)). We would give our support as much as

I think Iago can confirm this plan, and give his opinion.
