[Development] New Qt Multimedia

Are there any plans to officially support the GStreamer backend on Android down the line (with building GStreamer as an acceptable exercise left to the user) or would work in that direction be appreciated by the module maintainer?

At KDE, we have a couple of apps that use GStreamer API directly in conjunction with gst-qmlsink, as GStreamer enables some advanced pipelines not functionally supported by Android's native media framework (e.g. RTP without RTSP). Naturally, using Qt Multimedia is far more ergonomic than mixing GStreamer's C API into the code, however.
