functions for each of the class' virtual functions. Possibly also
some macros for GST_MIXER_CHANNEL_HAS_FLAG () or _get_channel ().
How to register these? Let's say that we use osssrc as an example.
typedef struct _GstOssMixer {
GstMixer mixer;
GstElement *element;
[.. more? ..]
} GstOssMixer;
typedef struct _GstOssMixerClass {
GstMixerClass klass;
} GstOssMixerClass;
static void
gst_ossmixer_class_init (GstOssMixerClass *klass)
GstMixerClass *mix_klass = (GstMixerClass *) klass;
[.. set virtual functions to their oss/mixer counterparts here ..]
static void
gst_osssrc_init (GstOssSrc *osssrc)
gst_element_register_interface (GST_ELEMENT (osssrc),
static GstInterface *
gst_osssrc_get_interface (GstElement *element,
const gchar *name)
GstOssMixer *mixer;
g_assert (strcmp (name, "mixer") == 0);
mixer = g_object_new (GST_TYPE_OSS_MIXER, NULL);
mixer->element = element;
return (GstInterface *) mixer;
And yes, that's quite a piece of code, but you didn't expect
that we could make a mixer in five lines of code, did you?
However, applications now *can*!
There might be some refcounting issues here: get_interface ()
should ref () the element, and we should set a mixer dispose
handler to unref () it again. Then, too, we could add a pointer
to the file descriptor in the osssrc/osssink, too, and we'd
have full access to the device.
However, that's implementation. Let's first worry about general

Overlay is used in both in- and output, too. Think of v4lsrc,
