Hi,

as an upstream GStreamer maintainer and a fellow Fedora Extras
contributor, I respectfully respect that no package for
gstreamer-plugins-bad gets put in Fedora Extras.

It is called bad for a reason; the plug-ins are likely to break
applications using it, contain security issues, have bad quality and
cause people to think that "GStreamer does not work".  -bad is the
project that contains the package of too low quality for distributors to
ship.

People that really want them for testing or development purposes know
where to find them.

My 2 cents,
Thomas
