I've got an implementation of zero-copy "pulsevideo" in my [pulsevideo repo] on
github.  It contains a "pulsevideo" program which is invoked like
gst-launch-1.0 and a source element to read from pulsevideo.

[pulsevideo repo]: https://github.com/wmanley/pulsevideo

It's still a work in progress, but many parts are in a good state already and
I've been using it in production reliably for the past month or so.

It is intended to work against GStreamer 1.2 and later so I can support Ubuntu
14.04 and as such it contains a modified version of multisocketsink, a backport
of watchdog from 1.4, a few new elements (socketsrc, fdpay, fddepay), a new
allocator (GstTmpFileAllocator) and a new buffer meta

I hope to get much of this into GStreamer proper, and the next step is to get
#739546 reviewed.  So if anyone has any interest in this work I would
appreciate a review of #739546.
