Sink elements take data from the pipeline and push it out,
they contain three mandatory fields:
type: "file" # string: "file", "inf", "zmq", "zmqinternal"
address: "video.mp4" # string: url or path, depending on 'type' property
filter: "*" # string, integer, or array of integers: source(s) to filter on (by zero-based index)
addressis a url to either a zmq socket or video file.
filterfiltering can be performed on the input source, it can either be
*to denote no filtering, an integer or a list of integers of the source you want to filter on. The Sources are implicitly indexed top-to-bottom starting from index 0.
typeis source type, there are 4 different types:
file: stream out to file.
zmq: publish output stream on a ZMQ socket.
zmqinternal: for connecting nimble containers together, must be connected to a Nimble
inf: infinite sink that drops received data.
Subscribing to a ZMQ Sink
Receiving data from Nimble is primarily though the
zmq sink type.
For a detailed description, please refer to:
Data Publishing Endpoint (PUB-SUB) in the ZMQ API.
For an example, please refer to Subscriber Example.
