1) Current testing is not related to multimedia, we want to know general 
user experience with new illumos-gate bits.
2) You can always use http://pkg.openindiana.org/hipster-encumbered/ 
repository to get a basic set of multimedia packages (basically, vlc and 
gstreamer codecs).
3) If you find that some software is missing, nothing prvents you from 
adding it to oi-userland. There's always an issue - the more software we 
have, more power we need to support it. And with basic  team of 3-5 men 
it's a big problem.
