The JMF is hard to install, has narrow support for multimedia codecs, is not
actively developed[1], and requires Java.  Issue 68717 is marked WONTFIX for
legal reasons?  OK, but end users still need an easy way to support a wide
variety of audio and video codecs.  Please find some way to accomplish the same
goal.  I don't know whether that means a rewrite or patching up any legal
barriers.  Thank you.

OpenOffice is currently using gstreamer 0.10. After upgrading to 1.0 it should be easier to use video/audio in presentations.

We plan to use gstreamer 1.0 is the next major release.
