The using of gstreamer multimedia backend of OpenOffice was anounced in Oracle OpenOffice.org
3.4 Beta 
in April 2010 and the first release with it was the Apache OpenOffice 3.4.0 in May 2012.

Previously to play multimedia content in OpenOffice the Java Media Framework (JMF) was used
( https://wiki.openoffice.org/wiki/Java/Java_Media_Framework ). 
The JMF wasn't updated since 2003 and supported too small amount of formats in contrast to
gstreamer.
