Re: [Rhythmbox-devel] Re: equalizer

Hi all,

Is a graphic equaliser not something that should be a stand alone
application for the Gnome desktop, rather than some GUI just in
Rhythmbox itself?

GStreamer 0.8 has an "equaliser" element, but I'm not sure if it has been ported to 0.10. If it has been ported, or someone ports it, it should be fairly easy to add support to Rhythmbox.

One thing that would need to be added is support for plugins inserting
gstreamer elements in the pipeline, which is on my list of things to do.
The only other thing that would need to be done is adding a menu item
for changing the equaliser settings.
