I've been working on a GstBaseDecode class which purpose would be to refactor
common code for decoder plugins. It is not specialized for video or audio, so
maybe GstBaseAudioDecode and GstBaseVideoDecode could also be created
inheriting from this.
I do not have any experience writing decoder plugins (and very little
experience writing gstreamer plugins in general), so this was more like an
experiment to get into the details of how decoder plugins work. I analized the
decoder plugins for ac3, mpeg2 and mad from -ugly, identified common bits and
tried to put them together in this class. Probably there are tons of other
things that an experienced decoder developer could add on top of what I did.
Also, there might be some design issues with my proposal.
Of course, this is very preliminary code, it needs polishing here and there,
etc, but I thought it might be a good starting place to get feedback or to let
some other more expererinced developer take it from here.
I'll attach the implementation soon.
