Well I can only say this - my experience now using osso media player instead
of gstreamer is that I can play, pause, start and stop my MP3 media stream
without affecting the frame rate of my game, and if it's not affecting my
frame rate, I'm unconcerned with if it happens in the DSP or not ;-)

Also, Kagu is very good on battery life when using it, so I'm not too
concerned about battery suck with it.

 But obviously I'm no expert - I've only used it for a day.
