I think you don't understand the difference between gstreamer and a video player like mplayer and helix. Gstreamer isn't an application that plays video and audio for you. According to the GStreamer website: GStreamer is a library that allows the construction of graphs of media-handling components, ranging from simple Ogg/Vorbis playback to complex audio (mixing) and video (non-linear editing) processing.
Applications can take advantage of advances in codec and filter technology transparently. Developers can add new codecs and filters by writing a simple plugin with a clean, generic interface.
I'm not a programmer and I only occasional play with linux so I'm not sure exactly what its flaws are, but this new version according to them is supposed to be much improved but as with all things time will tell whether or not this is true.
