don't know how to handle video/x-gst-fourcc-dvhp

I have been successful in using gstreamer and its plugins to play majority of 
the video file formats within Qt Phonon with gstreamer backend. I'd like to 
thank all contributors of the gstreamer for creating this fantastic media 

I am able to play most of the Quicktime videos with gst-ffmpeg plugin with an 
exception to one particular HD Quicktime video. I am able to play the file 
with ffmpeg just fine, but gstreamer compains that it cannot handle the file.

Here is my command line pipeline that duplicates the problem:
./gst-launch playbin uri=file:///

And the message I receive:
Setting pipeline to PAUSED ...

Freeing pipeline ... 

Seeing that ffmpeg already knows how to handle the dvhp codec, I am thinking 
that ffmpeg plugin is not including the 'video/x-gst-fourcc-dvhp' caps 
although it can handle it.

What are your thoughts?
Any insight would be appreciated.

Thank you very much!
