Hi Miguel,
Sounds like I good idea. I was wishing a few days back that this functionality was present. I am sure others will have comments, but I have a couple:
- WS is distributed under GPL, and Gstreamer seems to be LGPL. I am not a 100% sure, but as far as I know, the two aren't compatible.
- I would recommend you build the player as a plug-in (if you aren't already doing so).

right now i have a lot of spare time and i have thought to implement a
new functionality that i think will be useful.

It will be the possibility to play the media from a RTP stream (in the
future also RTMP stream or any audio/video) in real time, and also not
only the audio codecs right now supported, but any codec included
video ones. For this i will use GStreamer because i think is the best
technology for this purpose and in this circumstances.

My goals in order are:
- Substitute current functionality with GStreamer (RTP, only audio).
- Add support for real time playing (RTP, only audio).
- Add support for playing video in a RTP stream.
- Continue to add support to other protocols that transport media.

I don't ensure that i will implement all this or any part, just until
i get a new job or get tired.
