Description Thomas Vander Stichele 2005-10-31 19:38:05 UTC
the implementation should probably throw a warning/error and return FALSE
instead.  a unit test for this should be added as well.

documentation should be added to GstElement to explain typical cases how this
could be triggered; for example, setting state from a buffer probe callback
Comment 1 Andy Wingo 2005-11-29 17:49:40 UTC
This is a programming error; the function cannot be called from the streaming
thread. However we should probably be nicer to programmers and detect this
deadlock, giving them a nice error. Still a valid bug but not an api bug and not
a blocker.

fixed in CVS.

note, gstreamer core will now complain when trying to shut down streaming from the streaming thread.
