You can get very detailed debugging information from gstreamer by
setting the GST_DEBUG environment variable. "export GST_DEBUG=3" before
running you application for a moderate amount of information, 5 for a
lot of information. You can use GST_DEBUG_NO_COLOR=1 if you want to
redirect the output to a file without getting it filled with colour codes.
