What do you mean by good? Do you mean it plays better than other players and 
which ones? VLC has its own media streaming engine which is probably why it 
feels better to you than if it were using gstreamer.

So it seems your request is a bit self-contradictory.

If you really wanted to do that, you'd have to write a massive multipurpose 
VLC plugin to use the gstreamer. If at all possible. This is probably several 
man-years worth of effort for dubious benefit.
