Configurable plugin path

Shaunak Gupte-2
Hi All,

I have a bunch of gstreamer plugin libraries that I want to install in a custom location (for ease of uninstalling / keeping my own libs seperate from gstreamer provided libraries).

Instead of having to export the GST_PLUGIN_PATH or adding the path using GstRegistry APIs, can we have something similar to what ldconfig does? Have a directory /etc/ where we can specify the directories containing the gstreamer plugin libs?

This can be useful since we wouldn't have to explicitly use the GstRegistry API in every Gstreamer application or export GST_PLUGIN_PATH every time before running the application.

I can try to implement this and push a patch if this sounds useful. Or does such a thing already exist?
