how to use typefind

Perhaps a stupid question, but I've got a filesrc connected to a typefind
element. On the "have-type" signal I print out the capibilities:

*"Media type video/mpeg, systemstream=(boolean)false, mpegversion=(int)4,
parsed=(boolean)false found, probability 79%"*

But what can I do with this information? Can I search for compatible
elements or do I have to process this manually? How do I decide what the
next element in the pipeline should be?
