The Nokia 770 uses Gstreamer?  It looks like a cool device, but isn't 
mplayer typically what used by the embedded market?  I wonder why Nokia 
chose Gstreamer over one of the other options.  Not a complaint, I was 
just under the impression that the Gstreamer framework required more 
resources than some other options.
