I ment gnonlin, my fault. Please check their seeking code nevertheless.

that's what I ment. It seems to be 0.5 stable, which is already a little 
bit outdated... :)
(Doesn't include swscaler changes I got submited recently, e.g. ...)

Carefull! The problem lies within libswscaler. So: GST will work 
*perfectly* with Big Endian. But that doesn't mean, that your color 
conversion will work, too...

That can probably be fixed by carefull coding afterwards.

Maybe a better idea is, to get my new plugin system up and running.

After that, you can just write input plugins, that are dynamically loaded 
into blender (and can be controlled within a seperate source tree).

So there could be an input plugin, that uses ffmpeg directly, one that 
uses gstreamer, etc.
