Attempts at transcoding and GTK+

Transcoding one video container to another (with an audio and video stream) is proving more complex than initially expected. Whilst progress with transcoding has plateaued with no success, I have started to build a simple GUI to house current and future functionality.

The GUI is being built using GTK+. Integrating GTK+ into the makefile has been a painless process, and developing with the API has been relatively easy.

GTK+ was chosen for its multi-platform support - one of the desired requirements of my project is cross-platform support.

Over the next few days, I look to finalise the basic GUI and resume work on developing a transcoding system. Furthermore, I will also investigate compiling my current work under Microsoft Windows - currently, all work has been done in an Ubuntu development environment.
