[gst-devel] possibility to add another source pad to v4l2src

fyi, you might want to have a look at:


I am in the process of refactoring camerabin to look more like this, so you could (for example) have a separate viewfinder port and capture port..  I have it working basically as the "future" picture on that wiki page looks, at least for video capture.  A bit needs to be done still for image capture, and some cleanup is still needed.  

It doesn't quite help for what you want to do with v4l2src, but you could perhaps instead create a camsrc bin element containing multiple v4l2src elements and some glue logic to coordinate between them..  I think camerabin provides a better, higher level abstraction for applications to target for SoC's with advanced ISP's, compared to using v4l2src directly.
