GhostPad

GhostPads are useful when organizing pipelines with gstreamer.Bin like elements. The idea here is to create hierarchical element graphs. The bin element contains a sub-graph. Now one would like to treat the bin-element like any other gstreamer.Element This is where GhostPads come into play. A GhostPad acts as a proxy for another pad. Thus the bin can have sink and source ghost-pads that are associated with sink and source pads of the child elements.

If the target pad is known at creation time, GhostPad.new is the function to use to get a ghost-pad. Otherwise one can use GhostPad.newNoTarget to create the ghost-pad and use GhostPad.setTarget to establish the association later on.

Note that GhostPads add overhead to the data processing of a pipeline.

Constructors

this
this(GstGhostPad* gstGhostPad, bool ownedRef = false)

Sets our main struct and passes it to the parent class.

this
this(string name, Pad target)

Create a new ghostpad with target as the target. The direction will be taken from the target pad. target must be unlinked.

this
this(string name, Pad target, PadTemplate templ)

Create a new ghostpad with target as the target. The direction will be taken from the target pad. The template used on the ghostpad will be template.

this
this(string name, GstPadDirection dir)

Create a new ghostpad without a target with the given direction. A target can be set on the ghostpad later with the GhostPad.setTarget function.

this
this(string name, PadTemplate templ)

Create a new ghostpad based on templ, without setting a target. The direction will be taken from the templ.

Members

Functions

construct
bool construct()

Finish initialization of a newly allocated ghost pad.

getGhostPadStruct
GstGhostPad* getGhostPadStruct(bool transferOwnership = false)

Get the main Gtk struct

getStruct
void* getStruct()

the main Gtk struct as a void*

getTarget
Pad getTarget()

Get the target pad of gpad. Unref target pad after usage.

setTarget
bool setTarget(Pad newtarget)

Set the new target of the ghostpad gpad. Any existing target is unlinked and links to the new target are established. if newtarget is NULL the target will be cleared.

Static functions

activateModeDefault
bool activateModeDefault(Pad pad, ObjectGst parent, GstPadMode mode, bool active)

Invoke the default activate mode function of a ghost pad.

getType
GType getType()
internalActivateModeDefault
bool internalActivateModeDefault(Pad pad, ObjectGst parent, GstPadMode mode, bool active)

Invoke the default activate mode function of a proxy pad that is owned by a ghost pad.
