title: Voice and Video API
For functions that could be per conference, session, participant, or stream,
they would have a session and a participant parameter. A NULL for either of
these would be a wildcard.
*_initiate # Creates a PurpleMedia instance. Probably have a flag as to whether it's the initiator or responder init-media # Same as the current signal. Is triggered when *_initiate is called init-video-src # These are all triggered when the corresponding *_get_\* functions are called init-video-sink # The one problem I've thought of with them is that this way it wouldn't init-audio-src # be very easy to have multiple srcs or sinks of the same type.
*_get # Returns a global instance of the PurpleMediaManager
*_get_pipeline # Returns a global pipeline to be used for all PurpleMedia instances.
*_get_video_src # These all create their respective types if they don't exist.
*_get_video_sink # Otherwise they return a src/sink-pad for the existing src/sink.
# The next three functions will probably have a type parameter (audio or video, src or sink)
*_get_plugins # Return a list of audio/video GStreamer plugins (eg. v4lsrc, alsasrc)
*_get_devices # Return a list of devices for a specific plugin
*_get_devices_autodetect # Eventually, return a list of devices detected for all supported plugins
All of these functions will have parameters for session_id and participant_id
NULL for either of these would indicate a wildcard and do this operation for all
*_add_stream # Adds a stream/session/participant to the conference, automatically creates participants and FsSessions as necessary
*_add_candidate # Adds a single candidate to the stream (May not be necessary. Could alternately add a list)
*_set_candidates # Sets a list of candidates for the stream
*_set_codecs # Sets a list of codecs for the stream
*_set_direction # Changes the direction of a stream/session/participant (could use *_add_
stream to accomplish this)
*_accept # Accept a session (User clicked the accept button)
# The following two could probably be merged into one function
*_mute # Mutes an audio stream/session/participant (sending and/or receiving?)
*_pause # Pauses a video stream/session/participant (sending and/or receiving?)
*_end # Ends a stream/session/participant/conference
These signals also apply to the wildcard note above
ready # Waits for both codecs-ready to be TRUE and candidates-prepared to have fired (possibly also wait for the user to click accept if they are the responder otherwise we'll probably need an "accepted" signal) state-changed # Has an enum state (containing such states as connected, end, and ice-specific values) Signals for stream/session/participant/conference
More signals may be necessary for different protocols. Jingle ice-udp may also
need a new-candidate and/or new-candidate-pair and a codecs-changed equivalent
I'm not certain all of these will be necessary
*_codecs # gets codecs per sessions *_candidates # gets candidates per stream *_streams # gets stream_ids by session or by participant *_sessions # gets session_ids in the conference *_participants # gets participant names by conference or by session
