The patch looks good, but having a sample file for future reference would be useful. Also we should add support for this via ffmpeg, currently the caps mapping is missing.

Is video/x-cineform also the mimetype that you're using for this codec? ffmpeg calls it cfhd (AV_CODEC_ID_CFHD), so video/x-cfhd would be another option.

I can upload you a short CineForm sample but is a wetransfer link or something similar acceptable, because CineForm videos are always pretty heavy...

I have a patch for mapping the CineForm decoder from ffpmeg but some requierd pixel formats are missing from GStreamer I believe (see WIP patch attached).

CFHD is the "usual" fourcc associated with this codec (short for "CineForm HD") but now we mostly use the name "GoPro CineForm". I think x-cineform would be more descriptive but I don't really mind.

wetransfer or similar would be fine, thanks :)
