Description

This object implements a custom GstClock that synchronizes its time to a remote time provider such as GstNetTimeProvider.

A new clock is created with gst_net_client_clock_new() which takes the address and port of the remote time provider along with a name and an initial time.

This clock will poll the time provider and will update its calibration parameters based on the local and remote observations.

Various parameters of the clock can be configured with the parent GstClock "timeout", "window-size" and "window-threshold" object properties.

A GstNetClientClock is typically set on a GstPipeline with gst_pipeline_use_clock().
