Typedef Documentation

typedef struct TimeFilter TimeFilter

Opaque type representing a time filter state.

The purpose of this filter is to provide a way to compute accurate time stamps that can be compared to wall clock time, especially when dealing with two clocks: the system clock and a hardware device clock, such as a soundcard.

TimeFilter* ff_timefilter_new ( double  clock_period,
double  feedback2_factor,
double  feedback3_factor 

Create a new Delay Locked Loop time filter.

feedback2_factor and feedback3_factor are the factors used for the multiplications that are respectively performed in the second and third feedback paths of the loop.

Unless you know what you are doing, you should set these as follow:

o = 2 * M_PI * bandwidth * period_in_seconds feedback2_factor = sqrt(2) * o feedback3_factor = o * o

Where bandwidth is up to you to choose. Smaller values will filter out more of the jitter, but also take a longer time for the loop to settle. A good starting point is something between 0.3 and 3 Hz.

time_base period of the hardware clock in seconds (for example 1.0/44100)
period expected update interval, in input units
brandwidth filtering bandwidth, in Hz

void ff_timefilter_reset ( TimeFilter  ) 

Reset the filter.

This function should mainly be called in case of XRUN.

Warning: after calling this, the filter is in an undetermined state until the next call to ff_timefilter_update()

double ff_timefilter_update ( TimeFilter self,
double  system_time,
double  period 

Update the filter.

This function must be called in real time, at each process cycle.

period the device cycle duration in clock_periods. For example, at 44.1kHz and a buffer size of 512 frames, period = 512 when clock_period was 1.0/44100, or 512/44100 if clock_period was 1.
system_time, in seconds, should be the value of the system clock time, at (or as close as possible to) the moment the device hardware interrupt occurred (or any other event the device clock raises at the beginning of a cycle).
