[gst-devel] Access data from an X11 window

I am trying to access a video shown by an application on screen. I know the 
xwindow ID of the application (and hence know the start and end coordinates of 
the xwindow using xwininfo). I want to now record the video which the 
application plays. However, I don't want to record from screen as other windows 
or mouse pointer may occlude it.

Is there a way I can do that using Gstreamer. I know that GStreamer allows 
screencast through ximagesrc. However, can we somehow specify an application 
window (say by using xwindow ID) from which to record?

Would appreciate any pointers.
