[gst-devel] GstBuffer metadata

I'm new to GStreamer but I've read a bit of documentation and still have some 
unanswered questions. Namely: is it possible to associate arbitrary metadata 
with given GstBuffer? I would like to tag each packet with priority 
information depending on it's type (for example audio with higher priority 
and video lower). Then I would use this metadata in different plugin that 
will transmit GstBuffers to network (eg. dccpsinkserver). The metadata should 
be ignored if given plugin cannot understand it. Would that be possible? 
Thanks in advance,
Tomasz Grobelny
