Hi Stefan,

Thanks a lot for your answer.

The only message in the log regarding my plugin was:

 file /usr/gst/lib/gstreamer-0.10/libgstdfbvideosink.so not yet in

I thought that plugins are added to the registry  in gstraemer-0.10

Shall I do something to add the plugin?

No the name comes from the satic plugin-info structure. Build you gst
with --enable-gst-debug and run
GST_DEBUG="GST_REGISTRY:4" gst-inspect-0.10 2>debug.log

and check debug.log afterwards. It will tell you whats going wrong. Very
likely a missing symbol in the plugin-library.
