No, your bin needs to *implement* the GstURIHandler interface and by
that notify GStreamer that it can handle a specific URI scheme you
defined (e.g. videotestsrc://pattern-id).

You also need to give that bin a rank >= GST_RANK_MARGINAL to have it
used. Afterwards you can just use an URI that your bin handles on
playbin, and your bin will automatically be used.
