Introduction to GStreamer Base Plug-ins

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 gst-plugins-bad-0.10.23, gst-plugins-good-0.10.31, gst-plugins-ugly-0.10.19, and gst-ffmpeg-0.10.13 packages.

This package is known to build and work properly using an LFS-7.6 systemd platform.

[Note]

Note

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

Installation of GStreamer Base Plug-ins

First, if you are using i686, fix a compile problem inroduced by gcc-4.9.0:

patch -Np1 -i ../gst-plugins-base-0.10.36-gcc_4_9_0_i686-1.patch

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

./configure --prefix=/usr    \
            --disable-static \
            --with-package-name="GStreamer Base Plugins 0.10.36 BLFS" \
            --with-package-origin="http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/view/systemd/" &&
make

To run the unit regression tests, issue: make check. There are many other Makefile targets you can specify for running the tests, issue make -C tests/check help to see the complete list.

Now, as the root user:

make install

Command Explanations

--disable-static: This switch prevents installation of static versions of the libraries.

--enable-gtk-doc: Use this parameter if GTK-Doc is installed and you wish to rebuild and install the API documentation.
