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-7.8 platform.

User Notes:

Installation of GStreamer Bad Plug-ins



If you need a plugin for a given dependency, that dependency needs to be installed before this application.

If you have installed OpenJPEG-2.1.0 and wish to use it with GStreamer Bad Plug-ins, apply the following patch:

patch -Np1 -i ../gst-plugins-bad-1.6.1-openjpeg21-1.patch &&

Install GStreamer Bad Plug-ins by running the following commands:

./configure --prefix=/usr \
            --with-package-name="GStreamer Bad Plugins 1.6.1 BLFS" \
            --with-package-origin="" &&

To test the results, issue: make check. One test (camerabin) needs hardware with a camera. Several tests need a terminal emulator in a graphical session.

Now, as the root user:

make install
