[gst-devel] Calculate resulting output size from a given pipeline

my question concerns audio processing with gstreamer, but maybe it's
applicable to video.
Imagine i want to convert a flac file to a mp3 using gstreamer (via gst-
launch or using the API) : is there a general way to find the final size
of the output file (in that case, this would be the mp3 file) without
running the conversion pipeline ?
I'm not a specialist, but it seems to me that this information could be
derivate from the metadata of the source file (correct me if i'm wrong).
The author of the mp3fs filesystem (http://mp3fs.sourceforge.net/) seems
to calculate the final size of the mp3 file after compression of a flac
file. That's why i'm wondering if gstreamer can give me this information
in a more general way.
Thank you for reading !
