Why the capsfilter

this is because of how the caps negotiation works. the udpsrc element will
not be able to indicate the type of content that it is spitting out (it
simply does not have that capability) and hence will not be able to
indicate that in the pad caps. the rtpjpegdepay plugin can only work with a
source element that has the 'application/x-rtp' caps and since this is not
know the two elements cannot negotiate with each other and successfully
Because of this you have to manually specify the content type so that the
negotiation takes place.
