Not sure how those two things are related. You connect to playbin's
"notify::source" signal, then your callback will be called when playback
has created the source element (e.g. GstSoupHttpSrc). In the callback
you can then do something like:

 GObjectClass *klass;
 GstElement *src = NULL;

 g_object_get (playbin, "source", &src, NULL);

 klass = G_OBJECT_GET_CLASS (src);
 if (g_object_class_find_property (klass, "proxy-id") != NULL &&
     g_object_class_find_property (klass, "proxy-pw") != NULL) {
   g_object_set (src, "proxy-id", "foo", "proxy-pw", "s3cr3t", NULL);

 gst_object_unref (src);

So yes, the "source" property is read-only, but that only means that you
can't tell playbin what source to use (it will find one automatically
via the URI protocol), it doesn't mean that you can't set properties on
the source object.
