<question id="using-getting-started">
<para>Ok, I've installed GStreamer. What can I do next ?</para>
</question>
<answer>
<para>
First of all, verify that you have a working registry and that you can
inspect them by typing
<programlisting>
$ gst-inspect fakesrc
</programlisting>
This should print out a bunch of information about this particular element.
If this tells you that there is "no such element or plugin", you haven't
installed GStreamer correctly. Please check
<link linkend="chapter-getting">how to get GStreamer</link>
If this fails with any other message, we would appreciate a
<link linkend="using-bugs-where">bug report</link>.
</para>
<para>
It's time to try out a few things. Start with gst-launch and two plug-ins
that you really should have : fakesrc and fakesink. They do nothing except
pass empty buffers. Type this at the command-line :
<programlisting>
$ gst-launch fakesrc num-buffers=3 ! fakesink
</programlisting>
This will print out output that looks similar to this :
<programlisting>
RUNNING pipeline
fakesrc0: last-message = "get ******* (fakesrc0:src)gt; (0 bytes, 0) 0x8057510"
fakesink0: last-message = "chain ******* (fakesink0:sink)lt; (0 bytes, 0) 0x8057510"
fakesrc0: last-message = "get ******* (fakesrc0:src)gt; (0 bytes, 1) 0x8057510"
fakesink0: last-message = "chain ******* (fakesink0:sink)lt; (0 bytes, 1) 0x8057510"
fakesrc0: last-message = "get ******* (fakesrc0:src)gt; (0 bytes, 2) 0x8057510"
fakesink0: last-message = "chain ******* (fakesink0:sink)lt; (0 bytes, 2) 0x8057510"
execution ended after 5 iterations (sum 301479000 ns, average 60295800 ns, min 3000 ns, max 105482000 ns)
</programlisting>
(Some parts of output have been removed for clarity) If it looks similar, then
GStreamer itself is running correctly.
</para>
<para>
After this, you might want to try and see if GStreamer can play audio on your
system. You need to combine two plug-ins for this test : sinesrc (which
produces a pure tone) and an audio output plug-in. You should choose one
that matches your current sound output and you should make sure you have
it installed.
