Unfortunately, muxers lack any kind of equivalent of query_formats().
Lukasz's proposal of a probe device API may be what is missing, though.

Lukasz, are you reading this part of the discussion?

If the output format is known in advance, the corresponding context can be
declared as a child object to the sink context. That does not work for a
generic "any device" sink, though.
