Any pointers please?

In the past, I've used a small app based on the gst-rtsp-server
code, and adding mount points that do something like

rtspsrc location=rtsp://CAMERA-URI ! rtph264depay ! rtph264pay name=pay0

That avoids re-encoding, and just re-payloads the incoming datastream
and feeds it back out again.
