I think to be the real successor of the "Media OS" we have to support the Avisynth scripting language... sadly it is heavily based on DirectShow and some filters are in form of Windows binary (dll).

There was a try to create a multiplatform version of it: Avisinth 3... but sadly the project is died 2 years ago:

It's a shame as finally they not rely in ffdshow anymore and it partially worked on Linux, too!

At this point or we can try to port Avisynth 3 to Haiku but I think the support will be limited as it will be not supported in Windows or try to support the actual Avisynth 2.5 version in some way.

I think Avisynth is a really important from the HTPC side with all filter to enhance SD content and resize with very high quality to HD resolution and is heavily used too, to compress file from a format to another to achieve the best quality you can't simply encode the files as is!

There is yet a little hope, maybe:

This is gstreamer based... that I think Haiku hasn't it... Haiku "Avisynth" should link with Media Kit, right?

Well I think if it is in some way ported to Linux it became more simple to port to Haiku!

I don't think this needs to be built into the OS. It could be a great 3rd-party opportunity however.
