Detailed Description

Macro Definition Documentation

#define AVFILTER_FLAG_DYNAMIC_INPUTS   (1 << 0)

The number of the filter inputs is not determined just by AVFilter.inputs.

The filter might add additional inputs during initialization depending on the options supplied to it.

Definition at line 431 of file avfilter.h.

Referenced by show_filters().

#define AVFILTER_FLAG_DYNAMIC_OUTPUTS   (1 << 1)

The number of the filter outputs is not determined just by AVFilter.outputs.

The filter might add additional outputs during initialization depending on the options supplied to it.

Definition at line 437 of file avfilter.h.

Referenced by show_filters().

#define AVFILTER_FLAG_SLICE_THREADS   (1 << 2)

The filter supports multithreading by splitting frames into multiple parts and processing them concurrently.

Definition at line 442 of file avfilter.h.

Referenced by avfilter_init_dict(), and show_filters().

#define AVFILTER_FLAG_SUPPORT_TIMELINE_GENERIC   (1 << 16)

Some filters support a generic "enable" expression option that can be used to enable or disable a filter in the timeline.

Filters supporting this option have this flag set. When the enable expression is false, the default no-op filter_frame() function is called in place of the filter_frame() callback defined on each input pad, thus the frame is passed unchanged to the next filters.

Definition at line 451 of file avfilter.h.

Referenced by ff_filter_frame_framed().

#define AVFILTER_FLAG_SUPPORT_TIMELINE_INTERNAL   (1 << 17)

Same as AVFILTER_FLAG_SUPPORT_TIMELINE_GENERIC, except that the filter will have its filter_frame() callback(s) called as usual even when the enable expression is false.

The filter will disable filtering within the filter_frame() callback(s) itself, for example executing code depending on the AVFilterContext->is_disabled value.

Definition at line 459 of file avfilter.h.

Handy mask to test whether the filter supports or no the timeline feature (internally or generically).

Initialize a filter with the supplied parameters.

Parameters
ctxuninitialized filter context to initialize
argsOptions to initialize the filter with. This must be a ':'-separated list of options in the 'key=value' form. May be NULL if the options have been set directly using the AVOptions API or there are no options that need to be set.

int avfilter_init_dict ( AVFilterContext ctx,

Initialize a filter with the supplied dictionary of options.

Parameters
ctxuninitialized filter context to initialize
optionsAn AVDictionary filled with options for this filter. On return this parameter will be destroyed and replaced with a dict containing options that were not found. This dictionary must be freed by the caller. May be NULL, then this function is equivalent to avfilter_init_str() with the second parameter set to NULL.
Returns
0 on success, a negative AVERROR on failure
Note
This function and avfilter_init_str() do essentially the same thing, the difference is in manner in which the options are passed. It is up to the calling code to choose whichever is more preferable. The two functions also behave differently when some of the provided options are not declared as supported by the filter. In such a case, avfilter_init_str() will fail, but this function will leave those extra options in the options AVDictionary and continue as usual.

The caller must provide the lists of inputs and outputs, which therefore must be known before calling the function.
The inputs parameter describes inputs of the already existing part of the graph; i.e. from the point of view of the newly created part, they are outputs. Similarly the outputs parameter describes outputs of the already existing filters, which are provided as inputs to the parsed filters.

[in]filtersstring to be parsed
[out]inputsa linked list of all free (unlinked) inputs of the parsed graph will be returned here. It is to be freed by the caller using avfilter_inout_free().
[out]outputsa linked list of all free (unlinked) outputs of the parsed graph will be returned here. It is to be freed by the caller using avfilter_inout_free().

This function returns the inputs and outputs that are left unlinked after parsing the graph and the caller then deals with them.
This function makes no reference whatsoever to already existing parts of the graph and the inputs parameter will on return contain inputs of the newly parsed part of the graph. Analogously the outputs parameter will contain outputs of the newly created filters.

int avfilter_graph_request_oldest ( AVFilterGraph graph)

Request a frame on the oldest sink link.

If the request returns AVERROR_EOF, try the next.

Note that this function is not meant to be the sole scheduling mechanism of a filtergraph, only a convenience function to help drain a filtergraph in a balanced way under normal circumstances.

Also note that AVERROR_EOF does not mean that frames did not arrive on some of the sinks during the process. When there are multiple sink links, in case the requested link returns an EOF, this may cause a filter to flush pending frames which are sent to another sink link, although unrequested.

Returns
the return value of ff_request_frame(), or AVERROR_EOF if all links returned AVERROR_EOF
