Thanks Nicolas. I'll try this one. Just hope that libsoup doesn't have
too many deps, I can integrate it with my buildroot env.

BTW, Is there a need/case for a curl based src element?

I have some free time on my hands and can attempt at writing one (or
maybe I can pickup from where this guy left off: Curl also has the
advantage in that it supports many protocols, not just HTTP (though
this point maybe moot as gst already has a plethora of plugins for
various streaming protocols).
