This is GStreamer Libav Plugins 1.1.90
This is GStreamer Libav Plugins 1.2.0
Changes since 1.0:
New API:
• GstContext negotiation / sharing / announcing for sharing a
generic context between elements, e.g. a display handle
• GL texture upload conversion meta for allowing different
buffer types to be converted to an OpenGL texture
• GstCapsFeatures as extension to GstCaps for allowing the
negotiation of specific memory or meta requirements between
• GstMemory flags for contiguous and non-mappable memory
• The stream-start event has optional flags now, e.g. for signalling
sparse streams
• The stream-start even has an optional group-id field now to signal
all streams that should be played together
• Allocators library in gst-plugins-base, currently only with generic
dmabuf memory support
• insertbin library for easier handling of dynamically linked
pipelines (in -bad for now)
• EGL helper library (in -bad for now)
• MPEG-TS data structure library (in -bad for now)
• New GstVideoRegionOfInterestMeta to describe a region of interest on
video frames.
• GstVideoDecoder/Encoder has new ::flush() vfunc to replace the
ill-defined ::reset() vfunc.
• The URI query allows to query the redirected URI now.
Major changes:
• New tool: gst-play-1.0 in gst-plugins-base for basic playback
testing on the command line.
• New plugins:
∘ mssdemux for Microsoft Smooth Streaming
∘ dashdemux for DASH adaptive streaming protocol
∘ bluez for interaction with Bluetooth devices
∘ openjpeg for JPEG2000 decoding and encoding
∘ daala for experimental Daala decoding and encoding
∘ vpx plugin has experimental VP9 decoding and encoding support
∘ webp plugin for WebP decoding (encoding to be added later)
∘ Various others: yadif, srtp, sbc, fluidsynth, midiparse,
mfc, ivtv, accuraterip and audiofxbad
• Moved plugins:
∘ dtmf, vp8rtp, scaletempo and rtpmux plugins are in
gst-plugins-good now
• Video:
∘ Fix handling of interlaced video in converters such as videoscale
and videoconvert (e.g. scale both fields independently)
∘ videoconvert will try harder to minimise quality losses when
conversion is necessary
∘ The experimental GstSurfaceConverter, GstSurfaceMeta and
GstVideoContext APIs from the (confusingly-named)
libgstbasevideo-1.0 library in gst-plugins-bad have now been
removed and been replaced by new APIs in GStreamer Core and
gst-plugins-base (see above). Since that was all that was left in
this library, the entire experimental libgstbasevideo-1.0 library
has been removed from gst-plugins-bad
∘ Chroma subsampling and chroma siting conversion is better handled
in videoconvert and the support for interlaced video was improved.
∘ New pinwheel and spoke patterns in videotestsrc
∘ videomixer can now accept different video formats on its sinkpads
and converts to a common format during mixing
• Audio:
∘ audioconvert will try harder to minimise quality losses when
conversion is necessary
∘ adder now allows muting/unmuting of its input streams, and also
per-input stream volume
∘ pulseaudio elements can switch between devices during playback now
∘ aacparse can convert between ADTS←→RAW
• Platform specific changes:
∘ Caps, events, etc. are now printed in the GStreamer debug logs
with their content instead of just the pointer address even on
non-glibc platforms (e.g. Windows, OSX, Android).
∘ Network elements (UDP/TCP) now work better with platforms,
where IPv6 sockets can't handle IPv4 (e.g. Windows)
∘ Linux/BSD: v4l2 had many improvements and cleanups
• Other changes:
∘ gst-libav now uses libav 9
∘ Static linking of plugins is supported now (also in 1.0.7)
∘ rtspsrc: add support for NetClientClock: when the server suggests a
GstNetTimeProvider in the SDP, set up a GstNetClientClock that
slaves to the remote clock and suggest this clock in provide_clock.
Simplifies synchronized playback of a resource from an RTSP server.
gst-rtsp-server now supports adding this to the SDP and can provide
a network clock
∘ RTP retransmission / NACK support and big RTP jitterbuffer improvements
∘ SRTP and DTLS support
∘ Changes to many elements and core to use the correct sticky event
order and also not lose any important sticky events during flushing
∘ >1000 fixed bug reports, and many other bug fixes and other
improvements everywhere that had no bug report
Things to look out for:
• Single header includes for all libraries, e.g. #include
<gst/video/video.h> - this was needed for some bindings.
• Stricter (correct) caps subset checking in some cases where this was
not correct before. Caps will now always fail to be a compatible
subset of another set of caps if the subset caps are missing some
fields that the superset caps have. This might lead to not-negotiated
errors if caps are incomplete now. However, it also prevents possible
data corruption caused by piping data formatted in an
incompatible/unexpected way into some elements. Check your h264 caps
for stream-format and alignment fields and AAC caps for the
stream-format field. This change will also be included in the next
stable 1.0.8 release.
• Stricter checking for missing events and correct sticky event order
(stream-start, caps, segment) in some places; this is not enabled in
stable releases by default, but you may get warnings when using git
builds, development releases or when compiling with
• x264enc now outputs data in byte-stream by default if downstream has
ANY caps (e.g. appsink without caps set, filesink, udpsink,
tcpserversink etc.)
• The MPEG TS demuxer posts messages contain the PMT, PAT, etc. in a
different format now. This new format uses the data structures from
the new MPEGTS library
• The GstContext API has changed between 1.1.4 and 1.1.90
