Class Details

class Gst.ControlSource(**kwargs)

The Gst.ControlSource is a base class for control value sources that could be used to get timestamp-value pairs. A control source essentially is a function over time.

A Gst.ControlSource is used by first getting an instance of a specific control-source, creating a binding for the control-source to the target property of the element and then adding the binding to the element. The binding will convert the data types and value range to fit to the bound property.

For implementing a new Gst.ControlSource one has to implement Gst.ControlSourceGetValue and Gst.ControlSourceGetValueArray functions. These are then used by Gst.ControlSource.control_source_get_value() and Gst.ControlSource.control_source_get_value_array() to get values for specific timestamps.

Parameters:timestamp (int) – the time for which the value should be returned
Returns:False if the value couldn’t be returned, True otherwise.
value:the value
Return type:(bool, value: float)

Gets the value for this Gst.ControlSource at a given timestamp.

control_source_get_value_array(timestamp, interval, values)[source]
  • timestamp (int) – the first timestamp
  • interval (int) – the time steps
  • values ([float]) – array to put control-values in

True if the given array could be filled, False otherwise

Return type:


Gets an array of values for for this Gst.ControlSource. Values that are undefined contain NANs.
