Details

GstBase.type_find_helper(src, size)[source]
Parameters:
Returns:

the Gst.Caps corresponding to the data stream. Returns None if no Gst.Caps matches the data stream.

Return type:

Gst.Caps or None

Tries to find what type of data is flowing from the given source Gst.Pad.

Free-function: gst_caps_unref

GstBase.type_find_helper_for_buffer(obj, buf)[source]
Parameters:
Returns:

the Gst.Caps corresponding to the data, or None if no type could be found. The caller should free the caps returned with gst_caps_unref().

prob:location to store the probability of the found caps, or None

Return type:

(Gst.Caps or None, prob: Gst.TypeFindProbability)

Tries to find what type of data is contained in the given Gst.Buffer, the assumption being that the buffer represents the beginning of the stream or file.

All available typefinders will be called on the data in order of rank. If a typefinding function returns a probability of Gst.TypeFindProbability.MAXIMUM, typefinding is stopped immediately and the found caps will be returned right away. Otherwise, all available typefind functions will the tried, and the caps with the highest probability will be returned, or None if the content of the buffer could not be identified.

Free-function: gst_caps_unref

GstBase.type_find_helper_for_buffer_with_extension(obj, buf, extension)[source]
Parameters:
Returns:

the Gst.Caps corresponding to the data, or None if no type could be found. The caller should free the caps returned with gst_caps_unref().

prob:location to store the probability of the found caps, or None

Return type:

(Gst.Caps or None, prob: Gst.TypeFindProbability)

Tries to find what type of data is contained in the given Gst.Buffer, the assumption being that the buffer represents the beginning of the stream or file.

All available typefinders will be called on the data in order of rank. If a typefinding function returns a probability of Gst.TypeFindProbability.MAXIMUM, typefinding is stopped immediately and the found caps will be returned right away. Otherwise, all available typefind functions will the tried, and the caps with the highest probability will be returned, or None if the content of the buffer could not be identified.

When extension is not None, this function will first try the typefind functions for the given extension, which might speed up the typefinding in many cases.

Free-function: gst_caps_unref

New in version 1.16.

GstBase.type_find_helper_for_data(obj, data)[source]
Parameters:
  • obj (Gst.Object or None) – object doing the typefinding, or None (used for logging)
  • data (bytes) –
    • a pointer with data to typefind
Returns:

the Gst.Caps corresponding to the data, or None if no type could be found. The caller should free the caps returned with gst_caps_unref().

prob:location to store the probability of the found caps, or None

Return type:

(Gst.Caps or None, prob: Gst.TypeFindProbability)

Tries to find what type of data is contained in the given data, the assumption being that the data represents the beginning of the stream or file.

All available typefinders will be called on the data in order of rank. If a typefinding function returns a probability of Gst.TypeFindProbability.MAXIMUM, typefinding is stopped immediately and the found caps will be returned right away. Otherwise, all available typefind functions will the tried, and the caps with the highest probability will be returned, or None if the content of data could not be identified.

Free-function: gst_caps_unref

GstBase.type_find_helper_for_data_with_extension(obj, data, extension)[source]
Parameters:
  • obj (Gst.Object or None) – object doing the typefinding, or None (used for logging)
  • data (bytes) –
    • a pointer with data to typefind
  • extension (str or None) – extension of the media, or None
Returns:

the Gst.Caps corresponding to the data, or None if no type could be found. The caller should free the caps returned with gst_caps_unref().

prob:location to store the probability of the found caps, or None

Return type:

(Gst.Caps or None, prob: Gst.TypeFindProbability)

Tries to find what type of data is contained in the given data, the assumption being that the data represents the beginning of the stream or file.

All available typefinders will be called on the data in order of rank. If a typefinding function returns a probability of Gst.TypeFindProbability.MAXIMUM, typefinding is stopped immediately and the found caps will be returned right away.

Free-function: gst_caps_unref

New in version 1.16.

GstBase.type_find_helper_for_extension(obj, extension)[source]
Parameters:
  • obj (Gst.Object or None) – object doing the typefinding, or None (used for logging)
  • extension (str) – an extension
Returns:

the Gst.Caps corresponding to extension, or None if no type could be found. The caller should free the caps returned with gst_caps_unref().

Return type:

Gst.Caps or None

Tries to find the best Gst.Caps associated with extension.

All available typefinders will be checked against the extension in order of rank. The caps of the first typefinder that can handle extension will be returned.

Free-function: gst_caps_unref

GstBase.type_find_helper_get_range(obj, parent, func, size, extension)[source]
Parameters:
Returns:

the Gst.Caps corresponding to the data stream. Returns None if no Gst.Caps matches the data stream.

prob:location to store the probability of the found caps, or None

Return type:

(Gst.Caps or None, prob: Gst.TypeFindProbability)

Utility function to do pull-based typefinding. Unlike GstBase.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 None, this function will first try the typefind functions for the given extension, which might speed up the typefinding in many cases.

Free-function: gst_caps_unref

GstBase.type_find_helper_get_range_full(obj, parent, func, size, extension)[source]
Parameters:
Returns:

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

caps:returned caps
prob:location to store the probability of the found caps, or None

Return type:

(Gst.FlowReturn, caps: Gst.Caps, prob: Gst.TypeFindProbability)
