  Perhaps this is one of the days when VLC developers regret the
decision to not synchronize/collaborate with GStreamer when GStreamer
was "there"? Since Nokia supports GStreamer for very obvious (to the
maemo community) reasons, supporting a competitor project wouldn't be
a very wise idea.

  DISCLAIMER: This is my very personal opinion and it may very well be wrong.
