    Default Snappy: A GStreamer & Clutter Powered Movie Player

    Phoronix: Snappy: A GStreamer & Clutter Powered Movie Player

    Snappy is an open-source movie player that has become part of the GNOME project and is powered by GStreamer and features a user-interface written in Clutter. The project has been around for a while but releases are rare, except for a new update this week...

    Why they always replace the Default Application? Totem is since 2.10 (2005) in Gnome and now they replace it again before Totem is "done".

    The interface looks nice and clean but FFS we don't need another player. We have a ton of them.

    And the worst thing is that we have again a new Name. This kills the Brand awareness again ....

    There are very little projects that actually have a brand worth maintaining. IMO at least.

    I don't think this is a replacement for totem as Gnome's default video player... there's nothing to that effect in the blog post, and I've never heard it mentioned on the Gnome dev lists. I think this is just someone's pet project, that happens to be hosted under gnome.org...

    Yeah, but Gnome doesn't have an Extragear culture as KDE does. Probably because Gnome used to be a GNU project (on paper it still is) and wasn't originally intended to be an umbrella project. So when people assume such things, I understand why they do.

    Not really. GNOME had GNOME Extras before which serves a similar project and the organization has changed in 3.0 to core, core apps and apps. Snappy isn't part of the regular release set and doesn't replace Totem (or its newer incarnation called Videos). It is just an extra app that follows the typical conventions within the desktop environment.

    This looks really cool, I want to try it out. Buuuut I kind of. Broke something by adding a unstable clutter ppa. Oops.
