No, I'm not aware of that...

So why are you claiming that an OS X port "needs" ffmpeg? I'm sure you
must have better things to do than spreading FUD.

I thought gstreamer and gnome was tainted
to each other (and yes there is a gnome port to OS X but not native).

Incorrect, Gstreamer depends on glib2, which in turn depends only on the
availability of a C library.

However I refuse to install it :), and as Hong Yu pointed out(?):
ffmpeg is better for embedded-integration, like the iPhone. And those
OSes that hasn't got gst-support yet.

I'm sure there are circumstances in which ffmpeg is preferable to
Gstreamer. But there are very few, and OS X is not one of them; this is
not negated by your refusal to install it.
