Definitely! If anyone would like to help with this please get in contact
with me so I can help explain how I've implemented certain things so far,
about locking, etc. The main things that are left to do to play 90% of media
files out there are implementing the filter graph manager, the reference
clock and the audio and video renderers (I have a hacky version of the video
renderer in my local tree but it is not ready for submitting as a patch).
Anyone that likes COM and graph algorithms should love the filter manager!

at the moment :(
