gst\-launch\-ext \- Run a predefined GStreamer pipeline
\fBgst\-launch\-ext\fR \fIfilename [filename...]\fR
\fIgst\-launch\-ext\fP is a tool that is used to run a basic predefined
\fIGStreamer\fP pipeline. This application is only used as a quick test to
ensure proper working of codecs and GStreamer. It doesn't handle more advanced
features like synchronisation.
All supported formats in GStreamer should be playable by simply typing:
gst\-launch\-ext filename
It will also print out the pipeline it uses, so you can customize it using
cut and paste.
\fIgst\-launch\-ext\fP can be configured by creating a .gst file in your
home directory. This is a perl-style configuration file and can override
the defaults for audio and video output sinks.
Here is an example .gst file that implements the same defaults as hard-coded
in the script :
AUDIOSINK = "osssink";
VIDEOSINK = "colorspace ! xvideosink";
You can change osssink to any of esdsink, alsasink, jacksink (if you have
the plug-in), and you can change xvideosink to aasink or sdlvideosink.
Other plug-ins might be used as well if GStreamer has them.
