As you refer to my comment of "crappy" frontends, I should clarify a bit:
I tested the development release 0.7.4, and there was no working release of 
gst-player for it, and gst-player CVS didn't work for me either. 
This other thing I tested was the "experimental" labeled port of totem to 
gstreamer which I couldn't get to work properly. But as gst-launch worked, I 
didn't care further. 
So don't take it negative for GStreamer if some CVS version of a frontend 
doesn't work :-)

Version: GnuPG v1.2.4 (GNU/Linux)
