Introduction to GStreamer
GStreamer is a streaming media
framework that enables applications to share a common set of
plugins for things like video encoding and decoding, audio encoding
and decoding, audio and video filters, audio visualisation, web
streaming and anything else that streams in real-time or otherwise.
This package only provides base functionality and libraries. You
may need at least gst-plugins-base-1.2.3 and one
of Good, Bad, Ugly or Libav plugins.
This package is known to build and work properly using an LFS-7.5
GStreamer 1.0 series is not API
or ABI compatible with GStreamer
0.10 series and both can be installed on the same system.
