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. Gillaume has experimented a bit with the idea and would like to expose his preliminary results.
