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

 * high/low CPU load or other resource usage such as network performance or
 * throttling. Typically sinks generate these events for each buffer
 * they receive.
 *
 * @type indicates the reason for the QoS event. #GST_QOS_TYPE_OVERFLOW is
 * used when a buffer arrived in time or when the sink cannot keep up with
 * the upstream datarate. #GST_QOS_TYPE_UNDERFLOW is when the sink is not
 * receiving buffers fast enough and thus has to drop late buffers. 
 * #GST_QOS_TYPE_THROTTLE is used when the datarate is artificially limited
 * by the application, for example to reduce power consumption.

 *
 * @proportion indicates the real-time performance of the streaming in the
 * element that generated the QoS event (usually the sink). The value is
 * generally computed based on more long term statistics about the streams
 * timestamps compared to the clock.
 * A value < 1.0 indicates that the upstream element is producing data faster
 * than real-time. A value > 1.0 indicates that the upstream element is not
 * producing data fast enough. 1.0 is the ideal @proportion value. 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
 * buffer that caused the element to generate the QOS event. A negative value
 * means that the buffer with @timestamp arrived in time. A positive value
Wim Taymans's avatar

860 861
 * indicates how late the buffer with @timestamp was. When throttling is
 * enabled, @diff will be set to the requested throttling interval.
862
 *
863
 * @timestamp is the timestamp of the last buffer that cause the element
864 865
 * to generate the QOS event. It is expressed in running time and thus an ever
 * increasing value.
866 867
 *
 * The upstream element can use the @diff and @timestamp values to decide
868 869
 * whether to process more buffers. For possitive @diff, all buffers with
 * timestamp <= @timestamp + @diff will certainly arrive late in the sink
