No, only the audio and video pids. How could I do this? PAT ist easy,
it is id 0, but for PMT I need the information from the PAT to add the
pid to the device to grab.

OK, I need current SVN, I used gst-fluendo-mpegdemux-0.10.4 from
Gentoo. With current SVN I can set the pids and get the next problem:

| ERROR ffmpeg :0:: header missing skiping one byte

This is ffdec_mp3 but I don't get this error when using the ffmpeg
demuxer. Swicthing to flump3dec gives me:

| flump3dec flump3dec.c:426:flump3dec_drain_avail: Need -5191485850105409408 more bits to decode this frame

That doesn't look right. This happens with all files that also fail
using the ffmpeg ts demuxer.

Note: this are not some strange files, they are dvb recordings from
two different channels. In case someone has an idea, here are two

Take care to get what you like, otherwise you will be forced to like
what you get.
