This is a rewrite of the pool negotiation and configuration. Direct

video-alignment. This removes copies when dealing with any elements that
supports VideoAlignment, and enable usage of generic video buffer pool,
XVImagePool and GLPool. It drops the crop meta implementation for now.

mpeg2dec: Fix handling of stride
A pipeline like:
gst-launch-1.0 filesrc location=file.ts ! tsdemux ! mpegvideoparse ! mpeg2dec ! vaapisink
would look bad when file.ts contains 704x576 video, because vaapisink would
give you buffers of stride 768, but libmpeg2 was not told about this and
used a stride of 704.
Tell libmpeg2 about the stride from downstream; in the process, teach it to
reject buffer pools that don't meet libmpeg2's chroma stride requirements

x264enc: Don't set max latency to the same value as the encoder latency
The meaning of the max latency is *not* the maximum latency this element will
introduce. It is the maximum latency this element can endure without
overflowing any buffers, which is infinite for x264enc.
Fixes latency configuration in zero latency mode, where max latency was
becoming 0... which usually won't work well if something else introduces
latency as then max < min in the end, and latency configuration just fails.

x264enc: Don't set an allocation maximum
There is no reason x264enc should enforce a maximum allocation size.
The maximum is normally set by buffer pool which cannot grow, but we
don't offer a buffer pool. This would lead to stall when used with
element that don't implement allocation query.

......
This is GStreamer Ugly Plugins 1.4.0
Changes since 1.2:
New API:
• GstMessageType has GST_MESSAGE_EXTENDED added. All types before
that can be used together as a flags type as before, but from
that message onwards the types are just counted incrementally.
This was necessary to be able to add more message types.
In 2.0 GstMessageType will just become an enum and not a flags
type anymore.
• GstDeviceMonitor for device probing, e.g. to list all available
audio or video capture devices. This is the replacement for
GstPropertyProbe from 0.10.
• Events accumulate the running-time offset now when travelling
through pads, as set by the gst_pad_set_offset() function. This
allows to compensate for this in the QOS event for example.
• GstBuffer has a new flag "tag-memory" that is set automatically
when memory is added or removed to a buffer. This allows buffer
pools to detect if they can recycle a buffer or need to reset
it first.
• GstToc has new API to mark GstTocEntries as loops.
• A not-authorized resource error has been defined to notify
applications that accessing the resource has failed because
of missing authorization and to distinguish this case from others.
This change is actually already in 1.2.4.
• GstPad has a new flag "accept-intersect", that will let the default
ACCEPT_CAPS query handler do an intersection instead of subset check.
This is interesting for parser elements that can handle incomplete
caps.
• GstCollectPads has support for flushing and a default handler for
SEEK events now.
• New GstFlowAggregator helper object that simplifies handling of
flow returns in elements with multiple source pads. Additionally
GstPad now always stores the last flow return and provides an
API to retrieve it.
• GstSegment has new API to offset the running time by a specific
value and this is used in GstPad to allow positive and negative
offsets in gst_pad_set_offset() in all situations.
• Support for h265/HEVC and VP8 has been added to the codec utils and codec
parsers library, and was integrated into various elements.
• API for adjusting the TLS validation of RTSP connection has been added.
• The RTSP and SDP library has MIKEY (RFC 3830) support now, and
there is API to distinguish between the different RTSP profiles.
• API to access RTP time information and statistics.
• Support for auxiliary streams was added to rtpbin.
• Support for tiled, raw video formats has been added.
• GstVideoDecoder and GstAudioDecoder have API to help aggregating tag
events and merge custom tags into them consistently.
• GstBufferPool has support for flushing now.
• playbin/playsink has support for application provided audio and video
filters.
• GstDiscoverer has new and simplified API to get details about missing
plugins and information to pass to the plugin installer.
• The GL library was merged from gst-plugins-gl to gst-plugins-bad,
providing a generic infrastructure for handling GL inside GStreamer
pipelines and a plugin with some elements using these, especially
a video sink. Supported platforms currently are Android, Cocoa (OS X),
DispManX (Raspberry Pi), EAGL (iOS), WGL (Windows) and generic X11,
Wayland and EGL platforms.
This replaces eglglessink and also is supposed to replace osxvideosink.
• New GstAggregator base class in gst-plugins-bad. This is supposed to
replace GstCollectPads in the future and fix long-known shortcomings
in its API. Together with the base class some elements are provided
already, like a videomixer (compositor).
Major changes:
• New plugins and elements:
∘ v4l2videodec element for accessing hardware codecs on
platforms that make them accessible via V4L2, e.g.
Samsung Exynos. This comes together with major refactoring
of the existing V4L2 elements and the corresponding
infrastructure.
The v4l2videodec element replaces the mfcdec element.
∘ New downloadbuffer element that replaces the download
buffering feature of queue2. Compared to queue2's code
it is much simpler and only for this single use case.
A noteworthy new feature is that it's downloading gaps
in the already downloaded stream parts when nothing else
is to be downloaded.
This is now used by playbin when download buffering is
enabled.
∘ rtpstreampay and rtpstreamdepay elements for transmitting
RTP packets over a stream API (e.g. TCP) according to
RFC 4571.
∘ rtprtx elements for standard compliant implementation of
retransmissions, integrated into the rtpmanager plugin.
∘ audiomixer element that mixes multiple audio streams together
into a single one while keeping synchronization. This is
planned to become the replacement of the adder element.
∘ OpenNI2 plugin for 3D cameras like the Kinect camera.
∘ OpenEXR plugin for decoding high-dynamic-range EXR images.
∘ curlsshsink and curlsftpsink to write files via SSH/SFTP.
∘ videosignal, ivfparse and sndfile plugins ported from 0.10.
∘ avfvideosrc, vtdec and other elements were ported from 0.10 and
are available on OS X and iOS now.
• Other changes:
∘ gst-libav now uses libav 10.2, and gained support for H265/HEVC.
∘ Support for hardware codecs and special memory types has been
improved with bugfixes and feature additions in various plugins
and base classes.
∘ Various bugfixes and improvements to buffering in queue2 and
multiqueue elements.
∘ dvbsrc supports more delivery mechanisms and other features
now, including DVB S2 and T2 support.
∘ The MPEGTS library has support for many more descriptors.
∘ Major improvements to tsdemux and tsparse, especially time and
seeking related.
∘ souphttpsrc now has support for keep-alive connections,
compression, configurable number of retries and configuration
for SSL certificate validation.
∘ hlsdemux has undergone major refactoring and works more
reliable now and supports more HLS features like trick modes.
Also fragments are pushed downstream while they're downloaded
now instead of waiting for each fragment to finish.
∘ dashdemux and mssdemux are now also pushing fragments downstream
while they're downloaded instead of waiting for each fragment to
finish.
∘ videoflip can automatically flip based on the orientation tag.
∘ openjpeg supports the OpenJPEG2 API.
