The Xine backend is not maintained anymore, so the choice is between the 
libvlc backend and gstreamer backend for most users, and many users actually 
prefer the libvlc backend (for many reasons, none of which are relevant here 
:-). I am not familiar with what additional restrictions your distro puts on 
you wrt. multimedia applications, so this might not be relevant to you, 

My two cent is that Gnome should rename it's configuration application to 
something that reflects what it is, instead of stealing the name from the KDE 
system configuration application.
