#include <gst/net/gstnet.h>


This object exposes the time of a GstClock on the network.

A GstNetTimeProvider is created with gst_net_time_provider_new() which takes a GstClock, an address and a port number as arguments.

After creating the object, a client clock such as GstNetClientClock can query the exposed clock over the network for its values.

The GstNetTimeProvider typically wraps the clock used by a GstPipeline.


gst_net_time_provider_new ()

GstNetTimeProvider *
gst_net_time_provider_new (GstClock *clock,
                           const gchar *address,
                           gint port);

Allows network clients to get the current time of clock .



a GstClock to export over the network



an address to bind on as a dotted quad (, IPv6 address, or NULL to bind to all addresses.



a port to bind on, or 0 to let the kernel choose



the new GstNetTimeProvider, or NULL on error

Types and Values

struct GstNetTimeProvider

struct GstNetTimeProvider;

Opaque GstNetTimeProvider structure.
