Description Wim Taymans 2005-11-30 19:50:05 UTC
pad_alloc_buffer currently calls the setcaps function when a buffer with
different caps was allocated by the downstream peer element. The problem with
this is that it makes writing certain plugins much harder as they might not be
able to renegotiate at that time, specifically basetransform.

need to show up in the output of gtk-doc, which with the current patch is not
the case)
