[gst-devel] Can application get the dynamic information inside the element

Thanks you for your info.

My usage is to open the device in source element, and I want to control it in my application, but I can not open the device twice.

So what's your suggestion?

The element may expose things via properties.

For your specific question: filesrc does expose the fd it's using (via
an 'fd' property), but it's almost certainly a bad idea to use that
for any purpose. Why do you want to know that?
