[gst-devel] seeking on the spider plugin first

I'm looking at the spider plugin, and I have the following problem. If
the very first move on the spider is a seek event, the spider won't seek.

what actually happens, is that gst_spider_identity_handle_src_event()
recieves the seek event, but at that time, ident->sink is still NULL
(typefinding has not happened yet), thus the seek event can not be
forwarded. (strangely enough, the src pad is indicated in the
gst_spider_identity_handle_src_event() call)

as a workaround, one can send some minimal inital data to the spider,
but this may cause hiccups, etc.

what could be done to make the spider do the typefinding earlier, so at
first one could seek on it?
