    Yes! you are missing the fact that 'new feature of RTP stream
playback' is also part of the multimedia framework, in our case:
GStreamer. If the desired extension to the player is some multimedia
capability, then one is to write a GStreamer element(s), OTOH if it's
something like a change in the GUI components of the video player,
then it's most probably not gstreamer you need to deal with.

    I think you should first read the documentation that *is*
available: GStreamer Application Development Manual:
