It's just a video (v4l2) output driver, right? So, the on-screen
handling is all done by the 'parent' v4l2element, the child (the
v4l2mpegsink) just accepts the buffers. This is how v4lmjpegsink (with
v4lelement as parent) does it too. It just accepts buffers, and the
v4lelement handles all onscreen display stuff...
