As for Gtk+, the problem does not lies in the API itself, but more probably
in the tutorials: the tutorials and gstreamer both come from freedesktop,
aka the project to port the Moore-Gates Law to Linux.

MPlayer's GUI for Unix is built on Gtk+, and I think we would have noticed
if it used gstreamer.

Actually, Gtk+ lets us get the XID of the underlying windows for its wigets:
if we have X11/Xv output, Gtk+-X11 comes automatically.
