Detailed Description

An AVChannelLayout holds information about the channel layout of audio data.

A channel layout here is defined as a set of channels ordered in a specific way (unless the channel order is AV_CHANNEL_ORDER_UNSPEC, in which case an AVChannelLayout carries only the channel count). All orders may be treated as if they were AV_CHANNEL_ORDER_UNSPEC by ignoring everything but the channel count, as long as av_channel_layout_check() considers they are valid.

Unlike most structures in Libav, sizeof(AVChannelLayout) is a part of the public ABI and may be used by the caller. E.g. it may be allocated on stack or embedded in caller-defined structs.

AVChannelLayout can be initialized as follows:

The channel layout must be unitialized with av_channel_layout_uninit()

Copying an AVChannelLayout via assigning is forbidden, av_channel_layout_copy() must be used instead (and its return value should be checked)

No new fields may be added to it without a major version bump, except for new elements of the union fitting in sizeof(uint64_t).

Examples
encode_audio.c, muxing.c, and resampling_audio.c.

◆ mask

uint64_t AVChannelLayout::mask

This member must be used for AV_CHANNEL_ORDER_NATIVE, and may be used for AV_CHANNEL_ORDER_AMBISONIC to signal non-diegetic channels.

It is a bitmask, where the position of each set bit means that the AVChannel with the corresponding value is present.

I.e. when (mask & (1 << AV_CHAN_FOO)) is non-zero, then AV_CHAN_FOO is present in the layout. Otherwise it is not present.

Note
when a channel layout using a bitmask is constructed or modified manually (i.e. not using any of the av_channel_layout_* functions), the code doing it must ensure that the number of set bits is equal to nb_channels.

◆ map

AVChannelCustom* AVChannelLayout::map

This member must be used when the channel order is AV_CHANNEL_ORDER_CUSTOM.

It is a nb_channels-sized array, with each element signalling the presence of the AVChannel with the corresponding value in map[i].id.

I.e. when map[i].id is equal to AV_CHAN_FOO, then AV_CH_FOO is the i-th channel in the audio data.

When map[i].id is in the range between AV_CHAN_AMBISONIC_BASE and AV_CHAN_AMBISONIC_END (inclusive), the channel contains an ambisonic component with ACN index (as defined above) n = map[i].id - AV_CHAN_AMBISONIC_BASE.

map[i].name may be filled with a 0-terminated string, in which case it will be used for the purpose of identifying the channel with the convenience functions below. Otherise it must be zeroed.
