registrychunks: Make sure we use aligned memory
This is in the same vein as for all other features. Some systems
might not allow unaligned read.

* gst/gstplugin.c:
plugin: plugin_load() must return a ref even if it was loaded already
Fix refcounting issue when plugin was loaded already.
gst_plugin_load() is supposed to return a ref, so it
must always return a ref.
This also fixes the gstplugin unit test on windows where
fork is not available and where test_load_coreelements()
would unref a plugin ref it didn't get and then mess up
the internal registry plugin list state for the next test,
in case where the test registry does not exist yet.

* gst/gstpad.c:
gstpad: Avoid stream-dead-lock on deactivation
The following case can happen when two thread try to activate and
deactivate a pad at the same time:
T1: starts to deactivate, calls pre_activate(), sets in_activation
to TRUE and carries on
T2: starts to activate, calls pre_activate(), in_activation is TRUE
so it waits on the GCond
T1: calls post_activate(), tries to acquire the streaming lock ..
but can't because T2 is currently holding it
With this patch, the deadlock will no longer happen but does not
solve the problem that:
T2: will resume activation of the pad, set the pad mode to the target
one (PUSH or PULL) and eventually the streaming lock gets released.
T1: is able to finish calling post_activate() ... but ... the pad
wasn't deactivated (T2 was the last one to "activate" the pad.
2018-01-15 18:13:45 +0100 Edward Hervey <>
* gst/gstpad.c:
gstpad: Release pending g_cond_wait() when stopping/pausing task
Otherwise we would deadlock waiting forever for the streaming lock
to be released

This module will not be very useful by itself and should be used in conjunction
with other GStreamer modules for a complete multimedia experience.
- gstreamer: provides the core GStreamer libraries and some generic plugins
This module, gstreamer, only contains core functionality.
For actual media playback, you will need other modules.
- gst-plugins-base: a basic set of well-supported plugins and additional
media-specific GStreamer helper libraries for audio,

reason or another. Many of these are are production quality
elements, but may still be missing documentation or unit
tests; others haven't passed the rigorous quality testing
we expect yet.

where you can find audio and video decoders and encoders
for a wide variety of formats including H.264, AAC, etc.

VA-API on Linux. Primarily for Intel graphics hardware.
