Hey Stirling. That's a great start, but sadly the PyGi documentation is
really scant and I'm having a hard time digging up anything on how to do
this. I've tried get_property("get-video-pad") on the playbin object,
but it knows of no such property. I tried a get_pad() call also on the
playbin object and there's no such method either. It's really shooting
in the dark with PyGi on most days it seems.
