[gst-devel] playbin2 properties

Playbin2 only exposes basic properties, but it does not expose the
basesink properties it inherits on the audio sink (qos, buffer-time,
buffer-latency, drift-tolerance, etc). As a result there's no way to
increase the latency to reduce power, no means to change the rendering
behavior, etc. I know, one of the answers will be 'why don't you
create a pipeline by hand', but the reality is that apps blindly rely
on playbin and you can't set those parameters even if the app has the
required knowledge.
Is there a trick to set those properties on the sink without changing
the code? Or do all these properties have to be defined at the
playbin2 level and then forwarded to the sink?
