So when this sort of thing happens, you should set
GST_REGISTRY_FORK=no (to avoid extra complexity of tracing child
processes), then run it in a debugger.
That'll let you see which plugin/element is causing the crash.
If you don't have a debugger, then you're probably doomed. However,
you could try running with GST_DEBUG=5, and see what the last output
is before the crash - it'll at least give you some idea what's going
wrong, most likely.
