Cinnamon DE is Dependent on Gstreamer?

I've been trying to remove as much of gstreamer as is possible but a couple of stragglers apparently are dependencies for the Cinnamon DE.

Removing Gstreamer1 removes the entire Cinnamon DE.

Removing gstreamer1-plugin-bad-free results in adding gstreamer-bad

Removing gstreamer-plugins-base results in removing VLC as well as anaconda

I thought VLC didn't use gstreamer.

Is there a DE that isn't so dependent on gstreamer? I find it odd that a DE is dependent on a video plugin.

possibly LXDE or enlightenment DE. most desktops will use gstreamer backend to some extent as it is not just for video but also audio. you could try installing the Live-ISOs in VM or just boot from them bare-metal without installing to check them out and discover what packages are installed via yumex-dnf or dnf

If you mean gstreamer1 then I don't think there's any problem since Cinnammon pretty much need it for sound effects playback...

If you mean the old gstreamer then yeah, still dunno why people depend on that old thing...

I can't remove any of these, well the second example just installs a different gstreamer plugin.

Mplayer with the SMplayer GUI seems to use the least gstreamer plugins and still work.
