I noticed the results of XOrg meeting about video support here:

Their draft schedule was:

 * End of January: release new versions of Cairo and Pixman that
contain the new APIs reuired by GStreamer
 * End of March: X server and Mesa releases are due - make sure the
required Mesa extension is part of this. Ideally XrenderPutImage would
be included, too.
 * April/May, after next Fedora/Ubuntu releases: Merge Cairo support
into gst-plugins-base and start porting elements to it. Encourage
application developers (browser, Flash players) to make use of the new
 * October: another Fedora/Ubuntu release that switches all users to
the new APIs

I don't know how this is going, but it's April/May and have we heard
any encouragement for our Flash player to make use of a new video 
rendering API for gstreamer?

Is there a wiki page that tells relatively clueless people like me
exactly how to run current snapshots on their production Linux system?
