I've been looking into making missing gstreamer plugin installation work with

Currently, the missing plugin installation API is rather limited and only
supports passing the XID of the app's window and no other details. The way this
was used was that gnome-packagekit would use the app's window XID to to attach
its own window as a transient child to the app's window.

In gnome-software, we would like to avoid doing that for a number of reasons,
most of all because it can't work under Wayland.

I'd like to add some replacement missing plugin API to make it work without
replying on the window XID. Attaching two patches for that.
