c++ – gstreamer audiomixer command to code converting-ThrowExceptions

Exception or error:

I want to use audiomixer in my application which receives audios from different sources and should play them together in speaker.

my final application should do something like this command:

gst-launch-1.0 audiomixer name=mix ! autoaudiosink autoaudiosrc ! \
audioconvert ! mix. udpsrc port=5001 caps="application/x-rtp" ! queue !\
rtppcmudepay ! mulawdec ! audioconvert ! audioresample ! mix.

I already wrote a code to use tee and queues and know how to work with tee and queues in code based on this code. but I don’t know how to use mixer in my code.

so for simplicity I just want to write a code to work as this command does:

 gst-launch-1.0 audiotestsrc freq=100 ! audiomixer name=mix ! audioconvert ! autoaudiosink autoaudiosrc ! mix.

I didn’t find any useful example to reach this goal, how can I write a C code to do this?

How to solve:

for the second part:

 gst-launch-1.0 audiotestsrc freq=100 ! audiomixer name=mix ! audioconvert ! autoaudiosink autoaudiosrc ! mix.

this code works:

#include <gst/gst.h>
static GMainLoop *loop;
int bus_callback (GstBus *bus, GstMessage *message, gpointer data)
    g_print ("Got %s message\n", GST_MESSAGE_TYPE_NAME (message));
    switch (GST_MESSAGE_TYPE (message)) {
        GError *err;
        gchar *debug;
        gst_message_parse_error (message, &err, &debug);
        g_print ("Error: %s\n", err->message);
        g_error_free (err);

    mixer2_sinkpad = gst_element_get_request_pad (audiomixer, "sink_%u");
    gst_pad_link (conv_pad2, mixer2_sinkpad);

    /* adds a watch for new message on our pipeline’s message bus to
