GstBufferList

Buffer lists are an object containing a list of buffers.

Buffer lists are created with gst_buffer_list_new and filled with data using gst_buffer_list_insert.

Buffer lists can be pushed on a srcpad with gst_pad_push_list. This is interesting when multiple buffers need to be pushed in one go because it can reduce the amount of overhead for pushing each buffer individually.

GstBufferList

Opaque list of grouped buffers.


Gst.BufferList

Opaque list of grouped buffers.


Gst.BufferList

Opaque list of grouped buffers.
