shoes audio / gems

hello all -

  SAY IT AIN'T SO...  have i hit a wall?  i'm trying to "translate" my audio
player from gtk2 to shoes.  from what i gather, the video element doesn't
and won't work on ubuntu 10.04 for audio playback.  my gtk2 player uses
gstreamer for playback, but i've read that gems with native extensions don't
work with shoes.  is this the case?  if so, any ideas about how i can make
noise with shoes?

  thanks in advance -

It is true! Sorta...

So here's the deal: Shoes can't install them itself, but if you wanted to
build your own custom Shoes, you probably could. We include gems with native
extensions in the distribution... Check it out:

https://github.com/shoes/shoes/tree/develop/req

I bet if you added gstreamer in there, and then added some stuff to
common_build...

https://github.com/shoes/shoes/blob/develop/make/make.rb#L52

It _might_ work.

If it does, please report back! I'd love to turn this into something
easier...

Absolutely. If there's anything I can to do help, you can catch me on #shoes
on freenode, too.
