When I execute this pipeline from the command line...
gst-launch -e rtspsrc location=rtsp://192.168.1.211:8109/camera.sdp
! rtpmp4vdepay ! mpeg4videoparse ! mp4mux ! filesink location=myfile
...and send a SIGINT to the process I get a file that is playable because I specified the '-e' which indicates that EOS on shutdown.
However, if I execute the same pipeline from the command line and remove the RTSP server (i.e. force a socket
error) the process exits without performing an EOS on shutdown. A quick look at the code in "gst-launch.c" confirmed my suspicion that EOS on shutdown is only performed on a SIGINT.
What if my application has recorded valuable video data and the network goes down, does this mean I have lost all of that data since the file will not be viewable due to the absence of EOS on shutdown processing on anything that is not a SIGINT?
Thanks in advance.
