[gst-devel] mpeg->divx prototype

i got tired of waiting and wrote a C program for the transcoding
that just encodes PCM audio in the AVI.  The reason i need
a C program is because i want to capture only a short interval
of the MPEG, for example from 2000.4 seconds to 2008.2 seconds.

i am able to seek the media so the first frame on the AVI
is as wanted, however, i'm having trouble finalizing the AVI.
How do i tell the pipeline, "OK enough"?  i tried PAUSING
the pipeline and sending events to different places.  i noticed
that PAUSE itself causes avimux to write the header, however,
going to PAUSE and then exit(0) doesn't work.  i tried
sending a NEW_MEDIA event.  i tried EOS.  Nothing really worked
and i got strange errors (or no errors), but mplayer complained
that the AVI file header was wrong.

Can you give me a clue about how to close down the pipeline
gracefully so the AVI file is properly finalized?

Victory to the Divine Mother!!         after all,
