RTP re-transmission using rtprtxqueue and rtpbin

Hi all, I try to implement retransmission of RTP.

I got RTCP NACK packets to notify packet loss from the receiver to
sender, but I cannot see any re-transmission RTP packets sent and the
rtprtxqueue of sender side reports 0 retransmission requests.

Actually the video streaming is quite well except that the
re-transmission doesn't work at the sender side when I drop some
packets using identity element.

The pipelines are as follows:

Sender side:
appsrc->encoder->rtp payloader->rtprtxqueue->rtpbin.send_rtp_sink_0

Receiver side: (rtpbin enables re-transmission)
rtpbin.recv_rtp_src_0->rtp depayloader->decoder->appsink

I'd appreciate it if anyone can provide some hints on how to implement it.
