GStreamer Ugly Plug-ins-0.10.4

Introduction to GStreamer Ugly Plug-ins

The GStreamer Ugly Plug-ins is a set of plug-ins considered by the GStreamer developers to have good quality and correct functionality, but distributing them might pose problems. The license on either the plug-ins or the supporting libraries might not be how the GStreamer developers would like. The code might be widely known to present patent problems. Also see the GStreamer Good Plug-ins-0.10.4, GStreamer Bad Plug-ins and GStreamer FFmpeg plug-in packages.
