Do you see a log message like "gst_app_src_set_max_bytes: ... setting
max-bytes to 0" ? If not, that would suggest, that that code path was
not reached, and the only explanation for that would be that the gst_src
pointer you pass to gst_app_src_set_max_bytes() is not actually a
GstAppSrc. Maybe your callback function signature isn't quite right -
could you post your whole source-setup callback function?
