Tutorial is already available in Maemo 3.x SDK documentation, but we
aren't sure it is working as expected, because of mediaplayer

I don't think it is the case, using :

gst-launcher filesrc location=test.ogg  ! decodebin ! audioconvert !
dsppcmsink does work, so gstreamer is handling the file correctly.

I think the problem is here, unfortunately :(

Developper documentation is a little too scarce about media player,

This part works fine, mediaplayer is launched properly

Before filling bugs against maemo, I think it would be better to only
have "one" ogg support package available for 770 / n800 (and soon n810)
to make sure efforts are not duplicated.

As a sidenote, from my distribution persective (I'm GNOME maintainer at
Mandriva), Maemo community "fragmentation" about packages and duplicated
work is killing me :( There seems to be a lot of energy around there but
often doing the thing or not using infrastructure available thanks to
Garage (for instance, some people are only using garage as a way to ship
files and don't store their source code in SVN).
