You can create *raw* video data specifying the format you want as
capabilities to the `videoconvert` element:

  $SOURCE ! decodebin ! videoconvert ! video/x-raw,format=RGBA ! $SINK

SINK can be for example `filesink` as said before, and only pixel data
will be saved.

You can see the supported formats with:

  gst-inspect-1.0 videoconvert


P.S. please don't break email threads.
