GNOME --
It seems there's an announcement imminent concerning some sort of "PulseVideo" project that likely is the PulseAudio equivalent for video.

Prolific open-source contributor at Red Hat, Christian Schaller, who has worked on GStreamer as well as the Transmageddon GNOME video transcoding app and other multimedia projects, seems poised to announce PulseVideo.

Hitting the GNOME Planet feed (seemingly by mistake) is a link to this protected blog post by password. The title originally mentioned "Introducing Pulse Video" and when refreshing the page the title is currently "Fedora Workstation next steps : Introducing Pinos."

I have yet to find any GNOME/Fedora references for Pinos when searching. When searching for PulseVideo, there's only this old Git repository by someone else for multiplexing access to webcams so that multiple apps can use the same hardware device concurrently.

We should know soon what PulseVideo/Pinos is all about, but whatever it is should be another interesting step for improving Fedora Workstation.

Update: It's now announced!
