Current gstreamer can't handle any files produced by digital cameras,
exaftool can. It handle even ogg, mov, avi, many image formats ...
But it can't handle mkv files.
So my question is: what longterm solution is better, to add mkv to
exiftool or to add exif to gstreamer?

As a guess, I would say GStreamer. I don't know the state of development
with exiftool, but GStreamer as a framework is quite widely adopted.

Please do not make answers like: I do not know what is it but i think it
is bad.
here is link to exiftool

I didn't say "I do not know what it is", I said I don't know the state of its development. Those are two very different things. Clearly if exiftool is no longer being developed or has less backing than a framework like GStreamer, the decision is easier to make.

From our point of view we would rather support less 3rd party frameworks/applications to do our extraction. We currently integrate with GStreamer, so that would be the reason for me suggesting it (others may have an opinion here).

But if you want a more concrete answer you should really be contacting the development teams for GStreamer and exiftool yourself and making your own mind up there. We will have a biased view based on our experiences and what we already support of course.
