WHAT IT IS
----------
This is GStreamer, a framework for streaming media. The
fundamental design comes from the video pipeline at Oregon Graduate
Institute, as well as some ideas from DirectMedia. It's based on plug-ins
that will provide the various codec and other functionality. The
interface hopefully is generic enough for various companies (ahem, Apple)
to release binary codecs for Linux, until such time as they get a clue and
release the source.
COMPILING FROM SOURCE
---------------------
This is GStreamer, a framework for streaming media.
This package is in the 0.9.x series. This means that this is a
development series leading up to a stable 0.10.x series.
You have been warned.
OVERVIEW
--------
GStreamer is split up over a number of modules, tarballs and packages:
- gstreamer:
The core. It contains the main library and header files, as well as
some fundamental elements. Every GStreamer project needs at least this
installed.
- gst-plugins-base:
A base set of plugins. This set is the set we actively keep synchronized
with the core and are also meant to serve as examples on how to write
GStreamer elements. It also contains a number of base classes for writing
GStreamer elements.
INSTALLING FROM PACKAGES
------------------------
You should always prefer installing from packages first. GStreamer is
well-maintained for a number of distributions, including Fedora, Debian,
Ubuntu, Mandrake, Gentoo, ...
Only in cases where you:
- want to hack on GStreamer
- want to verify that a bug has been fixed
- do not have a sane distribution
should you choose to build from source tarballs or CVS.
Find more information about the various packages at
http://gstreamer.freedesktop.org/download/
COMPILING FROM SOURCE TARBALLS
------------------------------
- again, make sure that you really need to install from source !
If GStreamer is one of your first projects ever that you build from source,
consider taking on an easier project.
- check output of ./configure --help to see if any options apply to you
- run
./configure

When building from CVS sources, you will need to run autogen.sh to generate
the build system files.
GStreamer is cutting-edge stuff. To be a CVS developer, you need
what used to be considered cutting-edge tools.
ATM, most of us have at least these versions :
* autoconf 2.52 (NOT 2.52d)
* automake 1.5
* libtool 1.4 (NOT Gentoo's genetic failure 1.4.2)
* pkg-config 0.8.0
You will need a set of additional tools typical for building from CVS,
including:
- autoconf
- automake
- libtool
autogen.sh will check for these versions and complain if you don't have
autogen.sh will check for recent enough versions and complain if you don't have
them. You can also specify specific versions of automake and autoconf with
--with-automake and --with-autoconf
