Rhythmbox uses gstreamer, it would be gstreamer that uses the plugin.
Rhythmbox does not link against the plugin, does not require the plugin,
etc. For that matter - neither does gstreamer.

I don't think there would be a legal problem.
If there was - can I use my X11 server which is MIT to display an emacs
window? What about emacs opening an X11 window?

I don't see a difference between that and rhythmbox using gstreamer
(lgp) which talks to this plugin.
