Hi,
as discussed on IRC it would be nice if thoggen allowed using alternative GStreamer elements for mpeg demuxing, decoding of several formats, etc.

A use case for this would be people who don't have gst-plugins-ugly/bad installed but have bought the Fluendo plugins for the required formats.

The one to use should either be handled by RANK or your preferred one first, everything else second ;)

    Well, on second thought, you need dvdreadsrc from -ugly anyway, and there's nothing in it for me really other than having more things that can go wrong, which makes things harder to debug.

    Also, Thoggen is GPL-licensed, not GPL with exception clause.
