I am trying to use the `valve` plugin to basically block one branch of a
`tee` in a gstreamer pipeline but this is setting my whole pipeline to
`PAUSED`. So, what I am doing is basically saving H264 encoded video from my
camera stream and also displaying it on the screen at the same time.

I try to use the `valve` plugin to block off a branch as follows;

However, this basically seems to set the whole pipeline to PAUSED rather
than just the branch. I was still expecting to see the camera stream on the
display but that is not the case.
