[vlc-devel] [PATCH 00/10] Chromecast timing with a demux-filter (v2)

The demux_filter_t code has been reworked so that calls to the real demuxer and
the demux filters cannot be mixed. Now the demuxer_t is a demux_filter_t with
p_next set to NULL. To avoid editing all the code due to the subclassing, the
shared part of their structure is done via a macro, the same way all
vlc_object_t share a common set of fields.

By default the core deals with the top demux_filter_t and in some cases where
it needs access to the demux_t fileds (attachements demuxer, stream) it can get
the one at the end of the chain.

As a side note, the adapative Demuxer seems like a good candidate to become
a demux-filter as it pretends to be a demuxer using a real demuxer underneath.

Steve Lhomme (10):
  [RFC] core: add demux-filter objects to intercept & filter demuxer
  chromecast: remove unused include
  chromecast: add a demux-filter to display better time
  chromecast: use the demux-filter to display the correct playback time
  chromecast: delay the Demux() call until the Chromecast is ready to
    receive data
  chromecast: fix the time displayed after seeking
  chromecast: send the volume and mute values when about to start
  chromecast: pause immediatly the device when pausing the player
  chromecast: pass the title/artwork to the Chromecast when starting
  [RFC] demux: allow default demux-filters
