[QtExtended] gstreamer question

Hi all,

in qtextended, there are different kind of media engines:

- helix
- cruxus
- gstreamer

cruxus is the default, and using the libmad patch, it can play mp3's
But what's the advantage of gstreamer support? If I compile it in, has
it priority over cruxus if gstreamer libs are on the device?
And if gstreamer is installed, can I then just play mp3's (using the
correct codecs) without the libmad patch?
I don't think helix is of any use anymore ...
