The GStreamer media player
already exists. You don't need to write it from scratch, you just need
to make your port use it.

Chrome uses FFMPEG, so if you look at the source when the Blink fork
happened, there might be a working FFMPEG media player. I'm not familiar
enough to say why it might be better, but Chrome and Firefox both use
FFMPEG, so it's clearly workable. The downside will be that no other
ports are currently using FFMPEG, so your media player might get less
