The GStreamer Base Plug-ins is a well-groomed and well-maintained collection of GStreamer plug-ins and elements, spanning the range of possible types of elements one would want to write for GStreamer. It also contains helper libraries and base classes useful for writing elements. A wide range of video and audio decoders, encoders, and filters are included. Also see the GStreamer Good Plug-ins-0.10.4, GStreamer Ugly Plug-ins-0.10.4, GStreamer Bad Plug-ins and GStreamer FFmpeg plug-in packages.
