‘Why Phonon Is a Broken Wheel’

Gstreamer developer Christian Schaller explains why he thinks Phonon (announced a few days ago by the KDE project) is a broken wheel. “I have held back blogging about Phonon for some time to avoid flamewars, but I don’t want to have efforts like OSDL delayed due to setups like Phonon being promoted or thought of as a workable solution for the issues faced. Let me start of with a brief introduction to the area of multimedia frameworks.”
