Totem (GStreamer backend) to ask in a non offensive manner...

does the gstreamer backend work fine now?

i am using gentoo, so i can specify if i want totem with the xine or with the gstreamer backend.

i was/am a gstreamer fan, so i specified an enable-gstreamer global flag.

but totem never worked for me.
there were a lot of avi files for which he did not open them, opened but froze and so on.

then a month ago, i told my gentoo system, that he should still use gstreamer globally, but let's use xine for totem.

and behold... i got thumbnails for video files, ALL my avi files are working now.
totem is now very usable for me...

(well, for serious movie watching i still use mplayer, because it has better keyboard shortcuts... ;), but totem is very useful for example to open remote files via gnome-vfs)

so, what i am trying to say is:
is the gstreamer backend now mature enough (or: is it as good as the xine one?)... because if still not, then imho it should wait until it is, before it becomes a part of gnome..

imho it's better not to ship a video player than to ship a half-working one.

of course, if it works now fine, i will be happy to have it as a part of gnome ;)
