'Twas brillig, and Thomas L├╝bking at 05/12/09 15:29 did gyre and gimble:

I don't know if you've been following but gstreamer backend has had some 
attention in kdesupport of late.

I only use Xine backedn when testing I've not broken something but 
generally use gstreamer for when I'm actually using my desktop and it 
Works fine for my use cases (which are not all that extreme to be fair).

Xine isn't a realistic option going forward either, but I accept that 
gstreamer hasn't had as much love as it should, which is sad as from a 
purely "what it's designed for" perspective, it should be the ideal 
system... such is life.
