Sorry for the confusion, Bastien and I went off-topic, and we were not
referring to libgstplay but to the gstreamer architecture. I agree that
this is not the role of libgstplay, that does not make sense. We are
asking for a way to allow a plugin to pass metadata up through the API
as a name/value pair list or perhaps XML. I do not know the details of
the event system, but maybe many plugins generate an on_load event that
has the metadata to accompany it.
Currently, in Kino, when loading an AVI, we examine the timecode to look
for gaps and present them to the users as separate scenes.

Are you planning to implement your processing filters as gstreamer
filter plugins too?
