Thank you for that generous enlightment. It helped me to get a closer 
understanding on these processes.

In the meantime, I downloaded Banshee Media Player. It has a light Miro 
instance included. And it is able to play with no issues. Downgrading 
Gstreamer versions from 1.0 to 0.10 was not needed to make it work.

Maybe next openSUSE 13.1 release will complete the GStreamer 
versions transition and we will be able to play Miro Standalone again.
