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[1] 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[2] with the idea and would like to expose my preliminary results.
