very nice Henrik. do many people use it today ?, or are most people on the net still advocating and writing Python or indeed anything But rebol for their and the majority of average peoples GUI video related scripting needs today! its a shame no one capable or willing so far was to take the likes the complimentary Video related (see most non rebol people see 'VID' and assume video related API options) display wrappers like The Old Kaa Media python modules Repository and translate it, or refactor it for the rebol modules use. i was even surprised the other day when it turns out GUI creators are still using the old Amiga Gui4Cli interpreter and its scripts ported to windows for their GUI Encoder needs today rather than Rebol View, and they have a large user base using that GUI to multi cross platform Encoders app today. The Kaa Media Repository is a set of python modules related to media. Kaa modules are based on parts from Freevo and modules created for MeBox. Kaa exists to encourage code sharing between these projects, and to serve as an umbrella for several previously disparate media-related modules in order to make them available from one (unique) namespace. Kaa provides a base module that implements the common features needed for application development, such as mainloop management, timers, signals, callbacks, file descriptor monitors, etc. Kaa's other modules provide specific media-related functionality, such as retrieving metadata on arbitrary media files (kaa.metadata, previously called mmpython), Python wrappers for Imlib2, Xine, and Evas, and many other high level APIs for easily creating applications that deal with video and audio. Kaa is named after the python character in the Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling. -- Best regards, david
