Adding a "multifile" protocol in multifilesrc
Submitted by César Fabián Orccón Chipana
It would be easier to be able to play a multifilesrc from the playbin (for example). It would be something like "gst-launch-1.0 playbin uri="multifile:///the/pattern/%d.png?start=START&index=INDEX&framerate=NUMERATOR/DENOMINATOR". I've been working on this and I'm ataching a couple of patches to do it.
The first modification is in Gstreamer (core), in gsturi.c/gsturi.h where I've added a very simple parser (I want to keep it simple now) and some types that would be used in gst-plugins-good/gst/multifile/multifilesrc.c (Second mofication: already done) and in gst-editing-services/ges/ges-multi-file-source.c (would be the next part).
