Ah OK, thanks. I reconfigured without vaapi and with -Dgst-plugins-bad:va=enabled, but from what I can see in the dot-graph, no va element is used anywhere when playing an mpeg2 video. Is it not detecting my video as mpeg2, or did I misconfigure?

Is the dotfile the only way to find out if gstreamer is using a particular module?
