GstBase.prototype.type_find_helper_get_range_full

function GstBase.prototype.type_find_helper_get_range_full(obj: Gst.Object, parent: Gst.Object, func: GstBase.TypeFindHelperGetRangeFunction, size: Number, extension: String): {
    // javascript wrapper for 'gst_type_find_helper_get_range_full'
}

Utility function to do pull-based typefinding. Unlike GstBase.prototype.type_find_helper however, this function will use the specified function func to obtain the data needed by the typefind functions, rather than operating on a given source pad. This is useful mostly for elements like tag demuxers which strip off data at the beginning and/or end of a file and want to typefind the stripped data stream before adding their own source pad (the specified callback can then call the upstream peer pad with offsets adjusted for the tag size, for example).

When extension is not null, this function will first try the typefind functions for the given extension, which might speed up the typefinding in many cases.

Parameters:

obj (Gst.Object)

A Gst.Object that will be passed as first argument to func

parent (Gst.Object)

the parent of obj or null

A generic GstBase.TypeFindHelperGetRangeFunction that will be used to access data at random offsets when doing the typefinding

size (Number)

The length in bytes

extension (String)

extension of the media, or null

Returns a tuple made of:

the last Gst.FlowReturn from pulling a buffer or Gst.FlowReturn.OK if typefinding was successful.

caps (Gst.Caps )

the last Gst.FlowReturn from pulling a buffer or Gst.FlowReturn.OK if typefinding was successful.

the last Gst.FlowReturn from pulling a buffer or Gst.FlowReturn.OK if typefinding was successful.

Callbacks

GstTypeFindHelperGetRangeFunction

GstFlowReturn
(*GstTypeFindHelperGetRangeFunction) (GstObject * obj,
                                      GstObject * parent,
                                      guint64 offset,

                                      GstBuffer ** buffer)

This function will be called by gst_type_find_helper_get_range when typefinding functions request to peek at the data of a stream at certain offsets. If this function returns GST_FLOW_OK, the result buffer will be stored in buffer. The contents of buffer is invalid for any other return value.

This function is supposed to behave exactly like a GstPadGetRangeFunction.

Parameters:

obj

a GstObject that will handle the getrange request

parent ( [allow-none])

the parent of obj or NULL

offset

the offset of the range

length

the length of the range

buffer ( [out])

a memory location to hold the result buffer

Returns

GST_FLOW_OK for success

If this function returns GST_FLOW_OK, the result buffer will be stored in buffer. The contents of buffer is invalid for any other return value.

This function is supposed to behave exactly like a Gst.PadGetRangeFunction.

Parameters:

obj (Gst.Object)

a Gst.Object that will handle the getrange request

parent (Gst.Object)

the parent of obj or null

offset (Number)

the offset of the range
