GstDeviceProvider

A GstDeviceProvider subclass is provided by a plugin that handles devices if there is a way to programmatically list connected devices. It can also optionally provide updates to the list of connected devices.

Each GstDeviceProvider subclass is a singleton, a plugin should normally provide a single subclass for all devices.

Applications would normally use a GstDeviceMonitor to monitor devices from all relevant providers.

Sets the detailed information for a GstDeviceProviderClass.

This function is for use in _class_init functions only.

Same as gst_device_provider_class_set_metadata, but longname, classification, description, and author must be static strings or inlined strings, as they will not be copied. (GStreamer plugins will be made resident once loaded, so this function can be used even from dynamically loaded plugins.)

Parameters:

klass

class to set metadata for

longname ( [transfer: full])

The long English name of the element. E.g. "File Sink"

classification ( [transfer: full])

String describing the type of element, as an unordered list separated with slashes ('/'). See draft-klass.txt of the design docs for more details and common types. E.g: "Sink/File"

description ( [transfer: full])

Sentence describing the purpose of the element. E.g: "Write stream to a file"

author ( [transfer: full])

Name and contact details of the author(s). Use \n to separate multiple author metadata. E.g: "Joe Bloggs <joe.blogs at foo.com>"

Function Macros

GST_DEVICE_PROVIDER_CAST

#define GST_DEVICE_PROVIDER_CAST(obj)            ((GstDeviceProvider *)(obj))

GST_DEVICE_PROVIDER_REGISTER

#define GST_DEVICE_PROVIDER_REGISTER(d_p, plugin) G_PASTE(gst_device_provider_register_, d_p) (plugin)

This macro can be used to register a device provider into a GstPlugin. This method will be usually called in the plugin init function but can also be called with a NULL plugin.

Parameters:

d_p

The device provider name in lower case, with words separated by '_'.

plugin

The GstPlugin where to register the device provider.


GST_DEVICE_PROVIDER_REGISTER_DECLARE

#define GST_DEVICE_PROVIDER_REGISTER_DECLARE(d_p) \
G_BEGIN_DECLS \
gboolean G_PASTE(gst_device_provider_register_, d_p) (GstPlugin * plugin); \
G_END_DECLS

This macro can be used to declare a new device provider. It has to be used in combination with GST_DEVICE_PROVIDER_REGISTER_DEFINE macro and must be placed outside any block to declare the device provider registration function.

Parameters:

d_p

The device provider name in lower case, with words separated by '_'.


GST_DEVICE_PROVIDER_REGISTER_DEFINE

#define GST_DEVICE_PROVIDER_REGISTER_DEFINE(d_p, d_p_n, r, t) \
G_BEGIN_DECLS \
gboolean G_PASTE (gst_device_provider_register_, d_p) (GstPlugin * plugin) \
{ \
  return gst_device_provider_register (plugin, d_p_n, r, t); \
} \
G_END_DECLS

A convenience macro to define the entry point of a device provider gst_device_provider_register_*(GstPlugin* plugin).

Parameters:

d_p

The device provider name in lower case, with words separated by '_'. Used to generate gst_device_provider_register_*(GstPlugin* plugin).

d_p_n

The public name of the device provider

r

The GstRank of the device provider (higher rank means more importance when autoplugging, see GstRank)

t

The GType of the device provider.


GST_DEVICE_PROVIDER_REGISTER_DEFINE_CUSTOM

#define GST_DEVICE_PROVIDER_REGISTER_DEFINE_CUSTOM(d_p, register_func) \

gboolean G_PASTE (gst_device_provider_register_, d_p) (GstPlugin * plugin) \
{ \
  return register_func (plugin); \
} \
G_END_DECLS

A convenience macro to define the entry point of a device provider gst_device_provider_register_*(GstPlugin* plugin) which uses register_func as the main registration method for the device provider. As an example, you may define the device provider named "device-provider" with the namespace my as following using device_provider_register_custom:


gboolean my_device_provider_register_custom (GstPlugin * plugin)
{
   gboolean ret = FALSE;
   ret |= gst_device_provider_register (plugin, "my-device-provider",
        GST_RANK_PRIMARY, GST_TYPE_MY_DEVICE_PROVIDER);
   return TRUE;
}

GST_DEVICE_PROVIDER_REGISTER_DEFINE_CUSTOM (my_device_provider, my_device_provider_register_custom)

Parameters:

d_p

The device provider name in lower case, with words separated by '_'. Used to generate gst_device_provider_register_*(GstPlugin* plugin).

register_func

pointer to a method with the format: gboolean register_func (GstPlugin* plugin);
