Description Sebastian Rasmussen 2014-07-24 20:09:25 UTC
When looking for code that accidentally forgot to unref the returned element reference from gst_bin_get_by_name() I found that gst_parse_add_delayed_set() leaks the reference to each enclosing bin of an element. This is easily remedied by the attached patch.

    parse: Unref reference to enclosing bins
    Previously all reference to enclosing bins of an element were leaked
    when doing delaying setting a property.
