Set this environment variable to any value ("1" typically) to switch off
colouring in GST_DEBUG output. This has the same effect as specifying the
--gst-debug-no-color command line option to well-behaved GStreamer
applications (ie. those that pass command-line options correctly to GStreamer).
This is particularly useful to reduce the size of debug output and also allows
for the output to be compressed much better than with colours turned on.

<para>
Set this environment variable to "no" to prevent GStreamer from forking on
startup in order to update the plugin registry. This is useful for debugging
purposes, but should not be used under normal circumstances, since it means
that plugins may be loaded into memory even if they are not needed by the
application.
