Gstreamer cleanup on crashes

knikhila
Hello,
I have written an application that uses Gstreamer for audio playback.
The application instantiates a pipeline with a uridecodebin and pulsesink.
If for some reason the application crashes, and is restarted, will there be any problems?
Are there any OS level resources that Gstreamer needs, that if not cleaned up correctly, will cause problems while launching the next time?

Thanks.

On Linux and any decently implemented OS, all resources should be freed
upon an application crash. In this context, Pulse Audio Daemon will
cleanup the state and free any held resources.
