I tried this and it didn't seem to make any difference.  I can see in the
graph that the is-live property is set to true.

Sorry, is there a standard format for getting the details?  From what I
could tell, the only info in a message is the source, type, timestamp, and
Structure.  I found that even before I try switching out the webcam source,
I'm receiving QoS messages:

(18446744073709551615) Source: videomixer21, Type: 16777216, Structure:

After I execute the swap, the messages are:

The elements are shown here:
