Hi Chuck,
This is Loren.  I'm not sure what you are saying here.  Are you trying
to turn on logging at a certain level?  If so then you need to set the
logging level the same spot as gst_init().  With vgo's stuff this is
done (or at least used to be done) in IMX27VideoEngine.cpp.  Am I
missing the boat here?
