Right, and you convinced me :)

What we need is a widget that is not based on totem's ;) We need
something with a sane and clean API... which still has to be defined.

If you want to work on that, great, we really need something like
that :) But I don't think one can design a good API for that without
having much experience with GStreamer and GTK.
