I have just installed package gstreamer 1.0, and I use as executable the file located in
~/usr/bin/gst-play-1.0 .

All is fine, I can play local files, and also I can use 'gst-play-1.0' in TV-MAXE to watch live video streams. I was wondering if there is some GUI or a gtk package in a repository out there to make gstreamer work with the keyboard so I be able to see videos in fullscreen, and maybe pause the video or even change brightness and so on. Fulscreen feature would be nice to have for Gstreamer.

I have read lots of tutorials on the Internet but they are all for developers, and advanced Linux users, I can't understand nothing from those scripts and suggestions.

For the moment I can watch videos and live streams adjusting the screen size manually, it is not that bad, image and sound are great, but maybe someone knows a package that works for Gstreamer, and includes a very useful interface for the average user?

I am not sure what happened since I first posted my question, but I recently tested again gstreamer 1.0 and it goes fullscreen now (using the menu button in the upper-left section of player's window to enter fullscreen), I can pause video with the space key and I suppose there are also other useful commands available that I haven't tried yet.

I followed a guide from this page, installed gstreamer 1.0 with all its dependencies, and it worked just fine for streaming videos at least. I use it to watch tv-maxe channels, and I have no complaints so far. Basically, all I had to do was to run this commands in a terminal window:

         sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gstreamer-developers/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gstreamer1.0*

I tested this on Xubuntu 12.04.5 so I can't promise it works for Ubuntu 14.04 or Xubuntu 14.04.
