Bins are basic building blocks of gstreamer pipelines. If you are
building up a pipeline by hand, you make elements, add them to a bin,
and then link them together and set the thing to PLAYING.

playbin is an element that does all of the work for you -- you just tell
it the file and tell it to play. However since it manages itself, you
don't get to play around with its contents. It interface is its GObject
properties, as seen with "gst-inspect-0.10 playbin".

There are examples of making this kind of pipeline in numerous places,
tests/examples/seek/seek.c in gst-plugins-base for instance.

Good luck,
Andy Wingo
