I have some questions about gstreamer/glib scheduler:

- Is gstreamer run loop get descheduled and give some CPU to other
process/threads when it has nothing to do ?

- Is gstreamer going into a sleep function when it has nothing to do or
is it blocked on a semaphore or mutex ?

- Is it possible to increase thread priority for audio driver ? Is it
done inside the plug-in ?

- If I want to implement a video output plug-in of a video player, will
gstreamer call video output plug-in according to the video  time stamp
included in the input file or should I manage some sleep functions
inside the video output plug-in ?
