If the same pipeline works in a C++ program using the API, but doesn't work with gst-launch, then it's not a very good tool for testing. All that being said, I'm comfortable enough with the command line that if I can do this on the command line with gst-launch, I may very well just do that. But if gst-launch is a testing tool, it should not fail where the API does not.

I didn't say that a pipeline that works in an application wouldn't
work with gst-launch.
