GstParse

These function allow to create a pipeline based on the syntax used in the gst-launch-1.0 utility (see man-page for syntax documentation).

Please note that these functions take several measures to create somewhat dynamic pipelines. Due to that such pipelines are not always reusable (set the state to NULL and back to PLAYING).
