View Source Membrane.File.SeekEvent (Membrane File plugin v0.12.0)
Event that triggers seeking or insertion to a file in
inspect(__MODULE__) allows to control behaviour of
Membrane.File.Sink when writing to a file
by seeking to given
position (relative to beginning of file, current position or end of file).
All buffers that arrive after that event are being written starting from the
If overwriting isn't the desired behaviour, one can set
insert? flag to
true. This will trigger
splitting the file into two parts containing bytes before and after
position. All buffers following
such an event will be appended to the first part. Inserting has considerable performance impact,
especially if done repeatedly, so it should be used only as a fallback for variable-length data.
For all other cases, one can fill unknown bytes with eg.
0s and simply overwrite them later.
