gst-plugin: Allow instantiating and configuring multiple GST plugins

This patch allows instantiating and configuring multiple GStreamer
plugins from the command-line.

One plugin will be instantiated for each 'gst.CODEC=ENCODER' found in
the command-line arguments.

The command-line argument format is:



- PLUGIN_OPT=VALUE is an argument list which allows passing
  configuration parameters to the plugin. Currently, on the the
  "framerate" setting is used in the GStreamer plugin.

- The CODEC argument is a supported codec (currently, vp8, vp9, mjpeg,
  h264, h265).

- The ENCODER argument is the name of a GStreamer encoder property
  (see `gst-inspect-1.0 ENCODER`), or 'auto' to let GStreamer pickup
  an encoder for this CODEC.

- ENCODER_PROP=VALUE is an optional list of GStreamer encoder
  - if ENCODER is 'auto', no encoder property can be passed.
  - ENCODER_PROP might be a plugin option (see PLUGIN_OPT=VALUE),
    overriding any value previously set for the current plugin.

    -c gst.vp8=vaapivp8enc:rate-control=cqp,keyframe-period=128,bitrate=8000
    -c gst.h264=auto
