The audio/video playing is fixed by removing / moving a gstreamer
library file (I can't remember the name or the location, maybe try
searching the archives, something with "lib" and "jitter"?) that
causes a segfault. I had to move it to another folder, then restart
the device, and playing worked perfect again.
