Detailed Description

Abstract interface for classes which provide MPEG sections into a Packetizer.

This abstract interface must be implemented by classes which provide MPEG sections into a Packetizer.

Member Function Documentation

◆ provideSection()

virtual void ts::SectionProviderInterface::provideSection ( SectionCounter  counter,
SectionPtr section 
)
pure virtual

This hook is invoked when a new section is required.

Parameters
[in]counterThe section counter is an information on the progression (zero the first time the hook is invoked from the packetizer).
[out]sectionA smart pointer to the next section to packetize. If a null pointer is provided, no section is available.

◆ doStuffing()

virtual bool ts::SectionProviderInterface::doStuffing ( )
pure virtual

Shall we perform section stuffing.

Returns
True if stuffing to the next transport packet boundary shall be performed before the next section. Unless explicitly allowed to, a Packetizer never splits a section header between two packets. This is not required by the MPEG standard but some STB are known to have problems with that.
