You want to, when no data is flowing : set the filesink to the NULL
state, change the location, bring back the filesink to the PLAYING
state. To ensure no data is flowing, use the gst_pad_set_blocked_async()
method on the pad feeding data to your filesink.
* Grab the mpegtsmux source pad and
gst_pad_set_blocked_async(sourcepad, TRUE, my_blocked_callback,
* In your my_blocked_callback:
** WHEN blocked is TRUE:
*** set filesink to NULL,
*** change the location property of filesink,
*** set filesink to PLAYING,
*** and finally call gst_pad_set_blocked_async(sourcepad, FALSE,
P.S. You can only do this with container formats that don't have headers
(like mpeg-ts). There might also be quirks about the PMT/PAT not being
present at the beginning of the second file.
