Introduction to GStreamer Bad Plug-ins

The GStreamer Bad Plug-ins package contains a set a set of plug-ins that aren't up to par compared to the rest. They might be close to being good quality, but they're missing something - be it a good code review, some documentation, a set of tests, a real live maintainer, or some actual wide use.

This package is known to build and work properly using an LFS-7.5 platform.



GStreamer 1.0 series is not API or ABI compatible with GStreamer 0.10 series and both can be installed on the same system.
