I have previously tried to use gstreamer for playing .ogg files in 
gnome-games, and I'm looking for a high-level sound API for playing .ogg 
SDL_mixer already has a single function, where you pass the filename of 
the ogg sound source, and SDL_mixer will instantly begin playing it. Very 
simple! As far as I can tell, there is no such functionality for paying 
sounds in gstreamer. The last time I tried, several 100 lines of 
complicated code had to be written.

So, what is the most simple way to play an .ogg files using gstreamer in
