ADTF  3.14.2
ADTF Media Description SDK

The ADTF Mediadescription Package brings the Data Definiton Language (DDL) and so the DDL Library into ADTF's scope.

The main header to include is:

#include <adtf_mediadescription.h>

Introduction

To use ADTF in a common generic way we are providing tools and utilities for convenience access and generation to handle the Data Definition Language (DDL).
With this language you are able to describe the stuctured content of the data sent via by Sample Streams from one Filter to another (as well as using Streaming Services).

The package will provide a default ADTF Stream Meta Type and many functionality around that support utilities writing, reading and describing memory content (sample content) with the help of the DDL. Currently ADTF comes with 2 DDL Packages:

  • The open source DDL Library which is delivered with this SDK ($(ADTF_DIR)/pkg/ddl).
  • For legacy reason, there is the old one ddl library variant under ADTF DDL SDK (Legacy Package) which is delivered with this SDK ($(ADTF_DIR)/pkg/adtfddl)

Dependency

The ADTF Media Description SDK depends on the ADTF Streaming SDK and the Open Source DDL Library and the ADTF DDL SDK (Legacy Package).
