GstURI not used
Last modified: 2005-11-22 13:58:26 UTC
Please describe the problem:
gsturitype.[ch] creates a new static GType for GstURI (which is just a
string)... but it isn't used anywhere.
According to Wim, this was done for GUI, so that when you see this type of
property, you know you can open a File selector or such.
We should either :
Get rid of it alltogether,
or Implement it properly in the GstURIHandler.
Steps to reproduce:
Does this happen every time?
After thinking over this once more, this should be removed, because we already
have a system for GUI to know if a plugin handles URIs and how to do that : the
I'll go over the sink/source plugins that handle URIs and make sure they
implement the interface properly so we can finally get rid of this.
I created a new bug for implementing GstURIHandler in all relevent source/sink
elements : 322127
Currently all elements that implemented GstURIHandler implement it correctly (in
sink with the element properties).
Removed all ocurrencies of GstURI in core. Closing bug
