When you say "gstreamer-javafx" I don't know quite what you mean. The
gstreamer-lite library is an internal component of JavaFX and it not
something meant to be used by itself. Refactoring the native code in the
javafx.media module just so it could be used independently from JavaFX
doesn't seem like something that would benefit JavaFX or make it easier
to maintain. Rather it could create defacto interfaces that could easily
break when we upgrade gstreamer (which we do from time to time to keep
up with bug fixes, etc). It's the same reason we don't support accessing
Prism or Glass directly.
