Description Paolo Pettinato 2015-12-01 17:44:27 UTC
pcapparse currently intercepts a GST_EVENT_FLUSH_STOP event and resets itself. However it does not push the event down the chain.

GST_EVENT_FLUSH_START is not handled and is passed down to the chain; this blocks the downstream elements in a flushing state (as the STOP event is intercepted and handled internally).

Fix will push the GST_EVENT_FLUSH_STOP down the pipeline as well.
