The backend are not intended do be completly feature compatible with regards to formats understood as I understand it. I have music here that works with xine but not with gstreamer.

mplayer supports different formats, comparing does not help. You might want to check [1]. Does anybody know about release plans of the mplayer or vlc phonon plugins?
