Playing a digital media is something complex, that requires non-trivial code. Such code is likely to have unknown security issues. It is therefore unwise to trust such code to handle untrusted data, such as a cat video from the internet. One solution that could be applied to GStreamer is to run the non-trivial code inside a sandbox. I have experimented a bit with the idea and would like to expose my preliminary results.  or a hippo video  http://guij.emont.org/blog/2012/05/08/video-decoding-in-a-sandbox/
