Deinterlacing, now in Totem

Totem, in git master for GNOME 2.32, has support for deinterlacing video streams, thanks to the work by Sebastian Dröge. You'll need gst-plugins-base from git master to test it out for now.

Free of charge, you'll get Philip Withnall's work on not blocking the interface when parsing playlists. This should make Totem feel more responsive overall.

Blast from the past? I would swear Totem had "Deinterlace" option few years ago.

zdzichuBG: There was a "Deinterlace" option, but it was xine-lib backend only. This one implements it in GStreamer, and makes sure that we only try to deinterlace interlaced streams.
