 * @short_description: Structure describing events that are passed up and down

 * @see_also: #GstPad, #GstElement
 *
30 31
 * The event class provides factory methods to construct and functions query
 * (parse) events.
32
 *
33 34
 * Events are usually created with gst_event_new_*() which takes event-type
 * specific parameters as arguments.
35 36
 * To send an event application will usually use gst_element_send_event() and
 * elements will use gst_pad_send_event() or gst_pad_push_event().
37 38 39 40
 * The event should be unreffed with gst_event_unref() if it has not been sent.
 *
 * Events that have been received can be parsed with their respective 
 * gst_event_parse_*() functions.

 * Events are passed between elements in parallel to the data stream. Some events
 * are serialized with buffers, others are not. Some events only travel downstream,
 * others only upstream. Some events can travel both upstream and downstream. 
 * 
46 47 48
 * The events are used to signal special conditions in the datastream such as
 * EOS (end of stream) or the start of a new stream-segment.
 * Events are also used to flush the pipeline of any pending data.

 * Most of the event API is used inside plugins. Applications usually only 
 * construct and use seek events. 
 * To do that gst_event_new_seek() is used to create a seek event. It takes
 * the needed parameters to specity seeking time and mode.

 * is a valid @stop given, it must be greater or equal the @start, including 
 * when the indicated playback @rate is < 0
 *
 * The @applied_rate value provides information about any rate adjustment that
 * has already been made to the timestamps and content on the buffers of the 
 * stream. (@rate * @applied_rate) should always equal the rate that has been 
 * requested for playback. For example, if an element has an input segment 
 * with intended playback @rate of 2.0 and applied_rate of 1.0, it can adjust 
 * incoming timestamps and buffer content by half and output a newsegment event 
 * with @rate of 1.0 and @applied_rate of 2.0
