Custom GStreamer Plugin in Android

I'm Matteo Ranzi, a Computer Science student from Italy.
It's been a few days since I started using GStreamer for a personal project
but now I got stuck trying to add a custom plugin into an Android app. I
followed the guide "The Basics of Writing a Plugin" on the official site
and managed to properly use the new plugin on Linux by using the shared
library compiled by the *make_element *tool.
Since in the Android app I'd prefer to directly use my custom plugin's
source code, I was wondering how to use a custom plugin by directly include
the .c and the .h files in the project. I read that I need to add the
method '*gst_plugin_my_filter_register' *(obviously by using the correct
name...) but due to the scarce documentation I found about that, I haven't
been able to make it work.

Do you have any suggestion or any good reference about that? Also, I'm
trying to use the tool gst-element-maker from gst-plugins-bad, but the
problem is the same... How do I the custom plugin by "linking" the source
code in my project?

Thank you in advance for the help.
Kink regards,
Matteo Ranzi
