The 'caps' that get set on the sink's sinkpad describe the media type,
using gstreamer's caps system (these look a lot like mime-types, and
in many cases there's a one-to-one mapping, but there are cases where
that's not correct - they're not actually mime-types in general).

So you can just set up a setcaps function on the sinkpad to find out
when the sink caps are set, and determine the media-type there.
