I'm usually too lazy to find out the appropriate debug categories too
(typefind element, typefind bits in core, typefindfunctions in -base),
so I usually just do something like:
GST_DEBUG=*:5 gst-launch-0.10 ... 2>&1 | grep typefind
(In my experience the debug output is rarely useful in figuring out such
problems though, it's often much easier to just look at what the
typefinder in question is doing and then go from there).
