 * The event class provides factory methods to construct events for sending
Stefan Kost's avatar

31
 * and functions to query (parse) received 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.

547
 * The time value of the segment is used in conjunction with the start

553
 * @start cannot be -1, @stop can be -1. If there
554

 * 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

 * @type indicates the reason for the QoS event. #GST_QOS_TYPE_OVERFLOW is

 * @proportion indicates the real-time performance of the streaming in the

 * proportion value can safely be used to lower or increase the quality of
 * the element.
 *
 * @diff is the difference against the clock in running time of the last

 * A @rate of 1.0 means normal playback rate, 2.0 means double speed.
 * Negatives values means backwards playback. A value of 0.0 for the
921 922 923
 * rate is not allowed and should be accomplished instead by PAUSING the
 * pipeline.
 *
924 925 926
 * A pipeline has a default playback segment configured with a start
 * position of 0, a stop position of -1 and a rate of 1.0. The currently
 * configured playback segment can be queried with #GST_QUERY_SEGMENT. 
927
 *
928
 * @start_type and @stop_type specify how to adjust the currently configured 
929 930 931
 * 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.
932
 *
933
 * When the rate is positive and @start has been updated, playback will start
934 935 936 937 938
 * 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.
939 940 941 942
 *
 * 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
943
 * #GST_SEEK_TYPE_SET to the desired position. 
944
 *
945
 * Returns: (transfer full): a new seek event.
