[gst-devel] gstreamer core optimizations.

for sure you won't be able to run on an embedded platform each and every 
GStreamer plugin. But, by simply cutting out plugins you don't need, you 
can end up with a suitable embedded-friendly Gstreamer framework. Nokia 
770 and N800 devices are running Gstreamer without a problem.

In our experience Gstreamer is not CPU hungry, on the contrary. For 
example, you could not notice any CPU load difference comparing a 
mad-based mp3 application decoder using gstreamer and madplay.
