I only need as a complement to filesrc/filesink simply to store files in a MYSQL database field. And every field has to be identified by a single text string. I made a property named location which takes a text string like this:


(I know this is kind of an ugly hack and that it would be better to have separate proberties.)

I think I've already implemented the features I need by now (only some bug hunting left). But I wondered if there were any features anybody else wanted from such an element. Perhaps search songs on a certain criteria (music style for example) and construct a playlist from that. I may not implement every suggested feature, but at least have them in mind. And I also think it is important it gets implemented in a consistent gstreamish kind of way.
