[gst-devel] gstreamer in a non-multimedia area?

I think may be gstreamer a good option at least for those two reasons you mentioned:
* Syncronisation: for example, in a galaxy evolution, several physics (gravitation, star evolution, etc.) are occurring at the same time, so we need syncronisation to control these computations.
* format negotiation: currently, different codes outputs different data formats so most of the time the output of one program has to be converted in order to be the input of another program. Using standard formats specified in the pads/caps, these can be avoided, I believe.
However, there is one problem. In a multimedia, we have all the data to be reproduced (encoded,decoded,etc) but in this case, starting from an initial snapshot (initial conditions) an new snapshot is produced (the snapshot at time t_0 + delta), then the latter is used to create the snapshot t_0 + 2*delta, etc, and I believe in gstreamer it is not possible that the output of a right element is the input of a left element, like in this diagram:
