Sort-of. Spider works in many cases, but not all... We're workin on the
cases where it doesn't work (ask Dave... He says he needs motivation. ;)

Sorry, I'm working on those docs right now. they're indeed outdated. For
now, please just look at how other plugins and apps do it as an example.
For this specific case, use:
GstStructure = gst_caps_get_structure (caps, 0);
const gchar *mime = gst_structure_get_name (structure);

Could you provide the code? Seems like you're forgetting something.
[don't know anything about schedulers, so skipping that question...]

You can only use one xvimagesink, afaik... All others will just display
blue. Julien, do you know more on this?
