 * Messages are implemented as a subclass of #GstMiniObject with a generic
29 30 31 32
 * #GstStructure as the content. This allows for writing custom messages without
 * requiring an API change while allowing a wide range of different types
 * of messages.

 * Messages are posted by objects in the pipeline and are passed to the
 * application using the #GstBus.
35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48

 * The basic use pattern of posting a message on a #GstBus is as follows:
 *
 * <example>
 * <title>Posting a #GstMessage</title>
 *   <programlisting>
 *    gst_bus_post (bus, gst_message_new_eos());
 *   </programlisting>
 * </example>
 *
 * A #GstElement usually posts messages on the bus provided by the parent
 * container using gst_element_post_message().
