Installing gstreamer1.0-gtk3 indeed fixes the problem.

It would have been nice to contact depending maintainers and provide an upgrade
path. You didn't even mention the package split it in d/changelog.

I don't see how gstreamer1.0-gtk3 entering testing would solve the situation. It
wouldn't get installed automatically so corebird would be broken even if it
entered testing today.

Is there another solution than adding a dependency on gstreamer1.0-gtk3 in
corebird? (Besides adding it to gstreamer1.0-plugins-good which you obviously
don't want).
