1. Is it reasonable to include gstreamer in xubuntu?
2. Is totem a good choice (I've never used it myself)?
3. Other proposition(s) for multimedia?
Can I say this I HATE ToTEM. It is difficult to use. It is not
straightforward. It is Processor intensive and I don't understand why
people would use it.
Sure rank all options. But I personally think that GXine is a far
lighter and far better option. IMHO.
