This could probably a FAQ, but I couldn't find the answer anywhere. I'm wanted 
to test gstreamer by plaing a movie file (mp3s work fine):

[rob] ~> gst-launch filesrc location=/cdrom/bmwshort.vob ! mpegdemux 
name=demux ! demux.video_00! { mpeg2dec ! xvideosink }

.. but that doesn't quite work:

INFO (19255: 0) Initializing GStreamer Core Library version 0.6.2
INFO (19255: 0) CPU features: (00000000) MMX SSE
INFO (19255: 0) registry: loaded user_registry in 0.253473 seconds
ERROR: pipeline could not be constructed: Could not link element demux to 

I can't seem to find documentation on the gst-launch grammar, besides the bit 
in the manual. Where does 'video_00' come from, for example?
