Could you provide us the exact pipeline(s) you've tried and the error
message(s) you get for those?

'could not link' usually means there was a mismatch between the
supported caps. E.g. dvdreadsrc will output an MPEG2-PS stream, you will
usually want a demuxer after that, depends on what you're doing of
course. The more information/context you provide, the easier it is for
us to help.
