I'm reworking the GstBuffer documentation.
One thing is not very clear to me. We have a few copy functions, and none
of them seem to copy any flags at all.
Here's a list of the BUFFER flags we have :
GST_BUFFER_READONLY = GST_DATA_READONLY,
GST_BUFFER_SUBBUFFER = GST_DATA_FLAG_LAST,
GST_BUFFER_FLAG_LAST = GST_DATA_FLAG_LAST + 8
I think that, when a buffer is copied, the new copy should:
- set READONLY, SUBBUFFER, ORIGINAL, DONTFREE to false
- carry over DISCONTINUOUS (which is spelled wrong, I'll fix that now, duh),
KEY_UNIT and PREROLL
The plug-in could then make modificiations as it deems fit.
What do you think ? If you all agree, I will look at this and make the
