[maemo-developers] Mediaplayer/GStreamer/Tracker: adding new file types?

Unfortunatley, I'm running into two issues with these solutions:
1. After registering the MIME type, it still doesn't show up. Probably because of http://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=24690 (".ts files are incorrectly detected as "application/x-linguist" not "video/MP2T")
2. playbin2 doesn't seem to choose the "best" pipeline for playing these .ts files. I get better results (more fluid video) building simple pipelines myself.

I guess I could resolve the freedesktop bug on my machine for me and now, but if someone with a freedesktop bugzilla account could vote for that bug, I'd be happy :-)
Any ideas about issue 2?

Thanks for all the info - I just LOVE the framework that Maemo 5 offers!
