This is a problem that is not unique to the Python loader - nor to loaders for
other languages. The LADSPA plugin for example can have new plugins without its
.so changing. An ffmpeg plugin that depended on an external ffmpeg would be
The easiest solution I had in mind was having a flag that marked plugins as
"must-load". Another possibility would be to have a special dir (say
$(plugindir)/autostart ;)) where you put (preferrably small) plugins.
Then all you need to do is put a libgstcheckpython.so there that checks if new
python stuff is available and if so, makes the registry load libgstpython.so.
That way you'd get around loading the Python interpreter in every program but
would still be sure you didn't miss anything.
