I am having real difficulty debugging memory allocation in my application.
Can anyone help
1.) How do I enable GST_BUFFER debug to that I can see what is going on
I usually do export GST_DEBUG=XXXX:[1-5] but using GST_BUFFER does not seem to work, I cant find anything in docs etc on how to turn on this debug using env variables.
2.) I use dynamic library loading and this seems to mean that both memwatch and mtrace are not too useful as I can not get the caller fields to be filled with anything other than a hex address which is not as helpful as I had hoped.
Using valgrind on a mips platform does not work either.
I would love to know how others are debugging memory leaks etc when using gstreamer on embedded devices. In the mean time finding out how to get GST_BUFFER debug to come out would be really helpful.
hope you can help
