I continued a bit more and found out the following
- I guess the popt error is not that relevant for this particular
- the code gst_register_core_elements in gst.c registers bin, pipeline,
queue and thread
- "gst-inspect bin" works fine (as opposed to "gst-inspect fakesrc")
- who should call gst_register_element for fakesrc? I assume the function
plugin_init in gstelements.c should be called by someone but apparently,
this doesn't happen. Any idea?
