Re: [Rhythmbox-devel] Re: rhythmbox: gstreamer vs xine

Wouldn't it make sense then to let Red Hat distribute a libxine (without
plug-ins that contain patents) and then let Totem for instance pop up a
dialog saying that it doesn't support the format, but you can check for
plug-ins that support the format at the site.

Then "normal" people who don't know about xine or totem, will notice the
application and easily find out where to download the missing media
