supporting libraries for plugins
GStreamer is developed under the terms of the LGPL (see LICENSE file for
details). Some of our plug-ins however rely on libraries which are available
under other licenses. This means that if you are using an application which
has a non-GPL compatible license (for instance a closed-source application)
with GStreamer, you have to make sure not to use GPL-linked plug-ins.
When using GPL-linked plug-ins, GStreamer is for all practical reasons
under the GPL itself.
The plug-ins which use a GPL library are as follows:
cdparanoia libcdparanoia (
aasink aalib (
xmms libxmms (
decdvd ac3dec,mpeg2dec (,
