 If you have your own application, you can easily use a pipeline ending with 
fakesink and do something in the have-buffer callback of the fakesink.  You 
can even play around with QoS by setting qos=true and sync=true on the 
fakesink.  Attached is some code for the have-buffer callback.

 If you're calling gst-launch on the command line and can't be bothered with 
creating an application, and accuracy is not essential, then you can do 
something like this:

gst-launch uridecodebin uri=... ! fakesink num-buffers=$BUFFERS > $LOGFILE
TIME=$(sed -n 's/Execution ended after \([0-9]*\)[0-9][0-9][0-9] ns./\1/p' \
echo FPS: $(( $BUFFERS * 1000000 / $TIME ))
