 * @short_description: Structure describing events that are passed up and down
 *                     a pipeline
28 29
 * @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
 * 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 
40
 * gst_event_parse_*() functions. It is valid to pass %NULL for unwanted details.

 * 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.

 * The newsegment event marks the range of buffers to be processed. All
549
 * data not within the segment range is not to be processed. This can be
550

 * The position value of the segment is used in conjunction with the start
 * value to convert the buffer timestamps into the stream time. This is 
 * usually done in sinks to report the current stream_time. 
 * @position represents the stream_time of a buffer carrying a timestamp of 
 * @start. @position cannot be -1.
559
 *
560
 * @start cannot be -1, @stop can be -1. If there
561
 * is a valid @stop given, it must be greater or equal the @start, including 
562
 * when the indicated playback @rate is < 0.
563 564 565 566 567 568 569 570
 *
 * 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

 *
 * @diff is the difference against the clock in running time of the last

 * The upstream element can use the @diff and @timestamp values to decide

 * whether to process more buffers. For possitive @diff, all buffers with

 * @start_type and @stop_type specify how to adjust the currently configured 
916 917 918
 * start and stop fields in playback segment. Adjustments can be made relative
 * or absolute to the last configured values. A type of #GST_SEEK_TYPE_NONE
 * means that the position should not be updated.
919
 *
920
 * When the rate is positive and @start has been updated, playback will start
921 922 923 924 925
 * from the newly configured start position. 
 *
 * For negative rates, playback will start from the newly configured stop
 * position (if any). If the stop position if updated, it must be different from
 * -1 for negative rates.
926 927 928 929
 *
 * It is not possible to seek relative to the current playback position, to do
 * this, PAUSE the pipeline, query the current playback position with
 * #GST_QUERY_POSITION and update the playback segment current position with a
930
 * #GST_SEEK_TYPE_SET to the desired position.
