Bug#299107: ITP: xiron -- ruby interface for xine-library for displaying video

  Description     : ruby interface for xine-library for displaying video

This is an extension to ruby which allows to use the xine-library to
play media streams. this binding takes advantage from the unique
features of ruby to provide an objectoriented, and easy-to-use interface
to xine. the goal of the api-design is to be lightweight and as smart as
possible but not outsmart the programmer. this api combined with the
powerful features of the ruby language itself leads to a powerful
development framework which makes the development of new media players
surprisingly easy.

xiron also provides some utility classes not directly related to xine
but very usable for frontends. currently there is a class to handle
mediamarks and playlists of various formats and an osd widget set to
easily write purely osd-based front-ends like oxine.
