Both gstreamer and xine-libs are currently constructed in a way to
allow for pluggable codec support.  Any application which makes use of
gstreamer or xine, we can ship as part of Fedora with open codec
support working out of the box, and then users can install addon
software for additional plugin support of additional codecs.

If you plan to have OpenVIP to make use of plugins you make want to
look at how both of these existing projects accomplish it.
