I don't know gavl, but it if it is close to as good as vlc/mplayer/ 
ffmpeg for reading codecs, it would be an improvement over Quicktime.   
gavl is already in macports so making a fink package should be easy,  
then it could be part of the nightly builds.

What about using ffmpeg for something like readanysf~?  Its much more  
widely deployed, its even on Windows.

Another option is to check in a version of gavl and the related  
packages to the pure-data SVN and have it build the library then build  
readanysf~.  Since gavl/gmerlin is not fully packaged on any platform,  
I think this makes sense.



If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of  
exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an  
idea, which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps  
it to himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into  
the possession of everyone, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself  
of it.            - Thomas Jefferson
