In the following article TI says they have a plug-in
for GStreamer:
gstreamer-devel at lists.sourceforge.net

> They'll have to support OpenMAX IL.

So if I understand what you are saying, it is that
Gstreamer currently does not have any OMAP DSP
accelerated video decode capability. That would have
to be supported by a specific codec and that codec
would have to be available as a plug-in to GStreamer.

That's what I would expect. I couldn't imagine how one
GStreamer plug-in could provide video decompression
acceleration for another plug-in and yet that's what
the above article seems to state.

However, the Nokia N800 and N810 must surely have a
media player that uses the acceleration capability of
the OMAP 2420 chip.
