One solution to do so is to use gst-validate-media-check-1.0 with the --full argument.

This will however write to either stdout or a file, I've given thought to extracting this functionality
to a library instead, thus gaining the option to keep things in memory instead, but never found free time to do so :)

Hope that helps,
