Recommendations for HTTP source element

Hi All,

I'm working on an embedded system with GStreamer 0.10.

Unfortunately in my setup, I don't have a HTTP src plugin (there's
only the filesrc plugin).

I know of 2 http src plugins - souphttpsrc and neonhttpsrc.

I'm surprised that there's no curl based src plugin (I could only find
sink plugins on the plugins page). Isn't curl a really old and stable
HTTP lib. So how come there's no curl based src plugin?

Which HTTP src plugin is recommended? I'd like to go for one which is
most stable and the HTTP lib is uses has the least deps.

Any suggestions based on your exp with these plugins?

Thanks for your time.
