It's quite cool but I wonder why you use GST_DEBUG_* macros to dump it. It
doesn't look particularly GST_DEBUG* related to me other than that it's useful
for debugging, among other things. Also, having it as GST_DEBUG_* macro might
lead some people to believe that this macro can be used freely just like
GST_DEBUG, which probably wouldn't be a good idea, would it?
I also wonder if it should be part of libgstreamer, or if it shouldn't rather
be put in some external helper library, like pbutils or so.
Furthermore, I wonder if the _WITH_TS variant is really needed, or if the
normal dump function could just check with strstr() if there's a "%"
GST_TIME_FORMAT template in the filename and fill in the time.
Haven't looked at the implementation, since it doesn't interfere with anything
In short, my suggestions:
- turn the macros into full-fledged functions
- either put the whole thing into gstutils.c or
into a new pbutils sub-module
Others may disagree of course. :)
