Gstreamer element validation suite
The goal of GstValidate is to be able to detect when elements are not behaving as expected and report it to the user so he knows how things are supposed to work inside a GstPipeline. In the end, fixing issues found by the tool will ensure that all elements behave all together in the expected way.
The easiest way of using GstValidate is to use one of its command-line tools, located at tools/ directory. It is also possible to monitor GstPipelines from any application by using the LD_PRELOAD gstvalidate lib. The third way of using it is to write your own application that links and uses libgstvalidate.
