I understand now that we need C developers.  But why when we are
making a front end.  Additionally, people mock how slow these took
kits are but ignore all the accessability, usability, and
internationalization of the program.  WinAmp/xmms for example is not
used in most linux version now because they want better accessibility.
 visually impaired people  don't want that.  They want something that
will work for them.  And this requirement for C programming.  That's
just sad considering this is a front end that is not directly attached
to ffmpeg.  I am trying to build on top of ffmpeg not assimilate it.
