Yeah... it's not exactly obvious.  This gets the FLV (flash video) stuff
working (livna repo needed for the second package)

# yum install gstreamer-python gstreamer-ffmpeg

As root, edit

/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/miro/frontend_implementation/VideoDisplay.py

line 75

where you find this chunk of code

        if values == None:
            # Using both renderers causes segfaults --NN
            #self.add_renderer("gstrenderer")
            self.add_renderer("xinerenderer")
        else:

Change it to use gstreamer

            self.add_renderer("gstrenderer")
            #self.add_renderer("xinerenderer")

and save and restart Miro.  FLV (eg, the JETSET stuff) works here after
that.
