Description Tim-Philipp Müller 2010-07-21 16:55:40 UTC
We should declare playbin2 stable and deprecate the old playbin and decodebin.

People are confused, since the docs for playbin2 say that it's unstable, and continue to use the old playbin.
Comment 1 Sebastian Dröge (slomo) 2010-07-21 17:17:12 UTC
Yes, should be done for decodebin2 too before 0.10.31.
