If you use my GStreamer bindings, you should be able to do everything in C++ 
with Qt, as long as you don't write new plugins. 
But if you want to fix/change any internals you need to deal with C+glib, just 
like in arts' scheduler.

The base classes of GStreamer are GObjects. So if you need to write a plugin, 
you need to extend from them. It's probably possible to wrap that as well 
(because Gtk++ does), but I did not work on that yet.
