Panoramic videos on the web (YouTube, Facebook) use an equirectangular projection. My cheap panoramic camera uses a fish-eye lens to capture a fairly wide angle. I needed a tool to transform a fish-eye video to an equirectangular video so I extended the gst-plugins-bad geometrictransform to do that.
It's sort of the opposite of geometrictransform's circle element.
I developed it against 1.8 since that's what's on my Debian machine. This patch is against master but I haven't actually tested it since I don't have a full gstreamer master build.
