GStreamer 1.24.5

GStreamer is a streaming media framework that allows the construction of graphs of elements which operate on media data. Applications using this library can do anything from real-time sound processing over playing video to capturing audio, video, and even other types of media data. Its architecture allows for adding new data types or processing capabilities simply by installing new plug-ins. GStreamer is the core module, containing libraries, headers, the basic object hierarchy, and a set of media-agnostic core elements.

1.4.021 Jul 2014 21:19 major feature: v4l2videodec element for accessing hardware codecs on platforms that make them accessible via V4L2, e.g. Samsung Exynos. This comes together with major refactoring of the existing V4L2 elements and the corresponding infrastructure. The v4l2videodec element replaces the mfcdec element. New downloadbuffer element that replaces the download buffering feature of queue2. Compared to queue2's code it is much simpler and only for this single use case. A noteworthy new feature is that it's downloading gaps in the already downloaded stream parts when nothing else is to be downloaded. This is now used by playbin when download buffering is enabled. rtpstreampay and rtpstreamdepay elements for transmitting RTP packets over a stream API (e.g. TCP) according to RFC 4571. rtprtx elements for standard compliant implementation of retransmissions, integrated into the rtpmanager plugin. audiomixer element that mixes multiple audio streams together into a single one while keeping synchronization. This is planned to become the replacement of the adder element. OpenNI2 plugin for 3D cameras like the Kinect camera. OpenEXR plugin for decoding high-dynamic-range EXR images. curlsshsink and curlsftpsink to write files via SSH/SFTP. videosignal, ivfparse and sndfile plugins ported from 0.10. avfvideosrc, vtdec and other elements were ported from 0.10 and are available on OS X and iOS now.
