YouTube and are working pretty well now, I think we should add
some automated testcases for video to stabilize, and we have some performance
issues we might postpone to after the release.
I didn't test myspace.
Also, it might be worth adding a table on the wiki about which configurations
have been tested, which work and which not.

Is this fixed ? Do we have a bug item for this ?

All my tests succeed, do you have more failure cases ?
We must finish up the dox, is asspec/ dir the place to
document ?

It's likely 4 and 5 belong to the same issue: GC.
I'd make this for next release, not the upcoming one.

Our documentation needs some love, if Ann can point us to 
the places that need update that would be great.

The "bug" is basically behaving like the whole display area has been invalidated
which triggers full redraw. To properly implement invalidated regions we
must cleanup the video_character_instance class.
Question (for tgc): is video_character_def used by both embedded video and
dynamically loaded FLV ? Can we trust the m_width and m_height of 
video_character_def ?

I think this is done for now, right ?

Anyone working on this ?

I confirm gst-0.10 (packaged in Ubuntu dapper) works fine.
Still needs ffmpeg plugin though..

I'd postpone to after the release.

This would be important at least to stub, IMO.
