   I wouldn't know, i am not a MediaServer developer but I don't see
them saying 'gstreamer is poo' or moving to some other framework so
that is why *you* need to file a bug, not them.

  If i find a bug in gstreamer (or any software), *I* will file a bug
but it was you who found the bug so why am *i* supposed to file it?

     Concidering all these possibilities, I ask you again, is it
reasonable to conclude "gstreamer is poo" and advertising that to
others as a fact?

   That is fine, you should use whatever works for you. Nobody is
forcing you to use gstreamer.
