Camera's rarely uses raw RTP these days. Most of the time, IP cameras
implement RTSP. For that, you can you "playbin" (playbin2 was the name
in 0.10 which is no longer maintained) with an rtps:// type of URI.

Ideally, you will want to use rtpjitterbuffer element. This element
will remove the jitter and do UDP packet reordering.

Note that GStreamer SDK from is not directly related to
the GStreamer Project. The content of this website is unfortunately out
of date and the GStreamer Project members have no access to update it.
