Kdenlive on Mac OS X

It lives! For a while now, MLT has worked on Mac OS X, but it was not possible to embed the MLT video window into a native Carbon or Cocoa application. However, with a new SDL audio-only consumer, an application can retrieve the image in a MLT frame-show event handler and paint it as desired. In the case of Kdenlive, I used a custom QGLWidget: http://www.kdenlive.org/forum/kdenlive-macosx-available-testing#comment-4663

Free/Open Source SDI plugin now available

Thanks to Linsys and Broadcast Centre Europe, MLT Git trunk now features a fully open source SDI output capability. Whereas the closed BlueFish444 module also supports HD, this is currently SD only.
