The other thing you may try, is to turn on latency agnostic mode in
WebRTC DSP library. See "delay-agnostic" property. You should have a 50
to 200ms adaptation time. 

During my integration I never seen such a bad adaptation time. Maybe
the latency reported from your hardware is completely off ? GStreamer
is very far from the hardware, hence is not the best place to implement
the echo cancellation. Whenever you can, use PulseAudio integration
(same library). This is enabled by setting stream-
properties=s,filter.want=echo-cacenl on both pulsesrc and pulsesink. It
won't be portable to other platforms though.

Ah, maybe you found your bug. Two pipelines ? You need the probe and
the dsp elements to be in the same pipeline (same clock, same base-
time). There is no support for cross-pipeline here.

More details is always better.

p.s. CCing gstreamer-devel, as I only reply to these request in places
I can share the answers with others.

It's going to be racy, it will stop working from time to time. Again,
this is not supported and in any case, it should be trivial to use a
single GstPipeline with multiple independent graphs.

Great,
