For example, instead of writing the stream into ximagesink or filesink 
or any other sink element, I want to write the stream into a buffer, 
something like "buffersink". Later I should be able to read from this 
buffer by something like "buffersrc". Actual problem is my video mixer 
should receive inputs from several resources, mix up these and finally 
produces a single  output stream. I know this is possible with the 
videomixer element, but how can I do this at real time? If I use 
buffers, if there is data in the buffer, videomixer can use it, right?

Thanks and Regards,
