    Well you never know

    Improving the overall video experience on Linux is worthwhile, as you'd get more users and developers interested.

    There is a new "video" tag in HTML 5, which WebKit supports (or at least will soon); if you google for "html 5 video tag" you'll see plenty of info...

    HTH

    Edit: but yes, I agree, mplayer, totem, etc do spring to mind first...

    Should this also improve Adobe Flash video playback?

    Tear free video works here on the open source radeon driver. HD 4850, 1920x1200 screen, 1080p video.

    I'd just be happy having a tear-free desktop experience especially with video playback. I have yet to witness such a desktop on Linux. Videos are usually OK until there are quick movements, then you can really see the tearing, and this is on both nvidia and ATI with both closed and open source drivers and always on high-resolution screens (1920x1080 or higher). I've even tried VDPAU through Mplayer using NVidia hardware and the closed driver with the same results. I thought this was one of the things Wayland was supposed to correct but it would be nice to fix it for Xorg which 99.9999999999999999% of Linux users use.

    I guess you might want to improve the experience when playing videos in a web browser. Me, I'd prefer to play videos outside the browser, after downloading them to a tmpfs so that I can control the playback and not worry about stuttering due to network slowdowns/congestion/whatever.

    Something about playing back videos in a webkit-browser (epiphany as far as I could gather) with gstreamer... that seems like a rather exotic corner case which maybe affects 5% of the linux-user base (Gnome users which don't use Firefox).
    It is about video with GStreamer, period. And other players could presumably hook into the same Cairo/Pixman infrastructure, once it is ready.
