Appsrc plugin is not registered on embedded platform

I'm using gstreamer on i.MX6Q embedded platform with ARM processor. I 
have managed to install everything without any errors. Gstreamer command 
line and C program runs and plays video without problem either. However 
when I tried to use appsrc plugin to inject buffer into the pipeline:
app->src = (GstAppSrc*)gst_element_factory_make("appsrc", "mysrc");
returns NULL.
When I did #gst-inspect  appsrc I've got this:
No such element or plugin 'appsrc'

I think the required libraries are installed in the correct locations:

Is there anyway to force the registration of this plug-in?
