"For the non-initiated, what new features can and will
the use of Playbin2 bring to Totem?
"The obvious one is that it's a newer codebase, which fixes a
number of known problems with the old plugin. This means we'll be
able to remove work-arounds from our code.
"Another enhancement is the better buffering, which should allow
YouTube style buffering for slower links, and seeking back within a
stream (say you missed the beginning of it)
"We would also be getting gapless playback, which would help
with the perceived performance."
