Very interesting! I'm working also on that.
Do you have any example c-code for a solution?

This has been discussed a few times before on the list. It won't work
out of the box with the current filesrc element.
The file-src element would need to be aware that the size is changing
and e.g. on every read, check the size and if changed send a new
duration message downstream.
