Ugly ;)

The best way to do this is to write an emotionsink, so that outputting
to evas is just like any other sink. Of course you'd have to set a
property on the sink to tell it where to embed itself (or whatever that
is in evas-speak).

Or, you could keep doing what you're doing, which might also work...

It is dynamically allocated; as long as you have a reference on it
(gst_buffer_ref) it won't go away.
