Bug ID: 778592
Summary: souphttpsrc: Add sessions/caching to souphttpsrc
Classification: Platform
Product: GStreamer
Version: unspecified
OS: All
Status: NEW
Severity: enhancement
Priority: Normal
Component: gst-plugins-good
Assignee: gstreamer-***@lists.freedesktop.org
Reporter: ***@siobud.com
QA Contact: gstreamer-***@lists.freedesktop.org
GNOME version: ---

I have a pipeline that fetches a videofile on a remote HTTPS server and then
plays it on a loop (catch the EOS and remove/add another souphttpsrc) however
this means that for every loop the remote file needs to be downloaded again
since I am tearing down and then creating a new souphttpsrc.

I would like to add the ability to maybe pass a SoupCache to souphttpsrc, so I
can pass around a cache/session and only download a file once even though
souphttpsrc has been created/destroyed multiple times.

Would a patch like this be accepted into souphttpsrc, and if so are there any
suggestions/requirements to make sure my patch would be accepted.
