# gstreamer-rs [![crates.io](https://img.shields.io/crates/v/gstreamer-editing-services.svg)](https://crates.io/crates/gstreamer-editing-services)  [![pipeline status](https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/gstreamer/gstreamer-rs/badges/master/pipeline.svg)](https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/gstreamer/gstreamer-rs/commits/master)

[GStreamer Editing Services](https://gstreamer.freedesktop.org/) bindings for Rust.
Documentation can be found [here](https://sdroege.github.io/rustdoc/gstreamer/gstreamer/).

NOTE: The GStreamer Editing Services API is not Thread Safe and before the 1.16
release this was not properly expressed in the code, leading to possible data
unsafety even in the rust bindings. We strongly encourage you to run with
GES >= 1.16.

These bindings are providing a safe API that can be used to interface with
GStreamer, e.g. for writing GStreamer-based applications.

For background and motivation, see the [announcement blogpost](https://coaxion.net/blog/2017/07/writing-gstreamer-applications-in-rust/).

The bindings (since 0.8.0) are autogenerated with [gir](https://github.com/gtk-rs/gir/)
based on the [GObject-Introspection](https://wiki.gnome.org/Projects/GObjectIntrospection/)
API metadata provided by the GStreamer project. Older versions before 0.8.0 were manually
written and the repository can be found [here](https://github.com/arturoc/gstreamer1.0-rs).
The API of the two is incompatible.

A crate for writing GStreamer plugins in Rust can be found here: https://github.com/sdroege/gst-plugin-rs

## Installation

To build the GStreamer bindings or anything depending on them, you need to
have at least GStreamer 1.8, gst-plugins-base 1.8 and gstreamer-editing-services
1.8 installed.

<a name="installation-linux"/>

### Linux/BSDs

You need to install the above mentioned packages with your distributions
package manager, or build them from source.

On Debian/Ubuntu they can be installed with

```
$ apt-get install libgstreamer1.0-dev libgstreamer-plugins-base1.0-dev \
      gstreamer1.0-plugins-base gstreamer1.0-plugins-good \
      gstreamer1.0-plugins-bad gstreamer1.0-plugins-ugly \
      gstreamer1.0-libav libges-1.0
```

Package names on other distributions should be similar.
Please submit a pull request with instructions for yours.

<a name="installation-macos"/>

### macOS

You can install GStreamer and the plugins via [Homebrew](https://brew.sh/) or
by installing the [binaries](https://gstreamer.freedesktop.org/data/pkg/osx/)
provided by the GStreamer project.

#### Homebrew

```
$ brew install gstreamer gst-plugins-base gst-plugins-good \
      gst-plugins-bad gst-plugins-ugly gst-libav gst-editing-services
```

#### GStreamer Binaries

You need to download the *two* `.pkg` files from the GStreamer website and
install them, e.g. `gstreamer-1.0-1.12.3-x86_64.pkg` and
`gstreamer-1.0-devel-1.12.3-x86_64.pkg`.

After installation, you also need to install `pkg-config` (e.g. via Homebrew)
and set the `PKG_CONFIG_PATH` environment variable

```
$ export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="/Frameworks/GStreamer.framework/Versions/Current/lib/pkgconfig${PKG_CONFIG_PATH:+:$PKG_CONFIG_PATH}"
```

<a name="installation-windows"/>

### Windows

You can install GStreamer and the plugins via [MSYS2](http://www.msys2.org/)
with `pacman` or by installing the
[binaries](https://gstreamer.freedesktop.org/data/pkg/windows/) provided by
the GStreamer project.

#### MSYS2 / pacman

```
$ pacman -S pkg-config mingw-w64-x86_64-gstreamer mingw-w64-x86_64-gst-plugins-base \
      mingw-w64-x86_64-gst-plugins-good mingw-w64-x86_64-gst-plugins-bad \
      mingw-w64-x86_64-gst-plugins-ugly mingw-w64-x86_64-gst-libav \
      mingw-w64-x86_64-gst-editing-services
```

#### GStreamer Binaries

You need to download the *two* `.msi` files for your platform from the
GStreamer website and install them, e.g. `gstreamer-1.0-x86_64-1.12.3.msi` and
`gstreamer-1.0-devel-x86_64-1.12.3.msi`.

After installation, you also need to install `pkg-config` (e.g. via MSYS2 or
from [here](https://sourceforge.net/projects/pkgconfiglite/))
and set the `PKG_CONFIG_PATH` environment variable

```
$ export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="c:\\gstreamer\\1.0\\x86_64\\lib\\pkgconfig${PKG_CONFIG_PATH:+:$PKG_CONFIG_PATH}"
```

<a name="getting-started"/>

## Getting Started

The API reference can be found
[here](https://sdroege.github.io/rustdoc/gstreamer/gstreamer/), however it is
only the Rust API reference and does not explain any of the concepts.

For getting started with GStreamer development, the best would be to follow
the [documentation](https://gstreamer.freedesktop.org/documentation/) on the
GStreamer website, especially the [Application Development
Manual](https://gstreamer.freedesktop.org/documentation/application-development/).
While being C-centric, it explains all the fundamental concepts of GStreamer
and the code examples should be relatively easily translatable to Rust. The
API is basically the same, function/struct names are the same and everything
is only more convenient (hopefully) and safer.

In addition there are
[tutorials](https://gstreamer.freedesktop.org/documentation/tutorials/) on the
GStreamer website. Many of them were ported to Rust already and the code can
be found in the
[tutorials](https://github.com/sdroege/gstreamer-rs/tree/master/tutorials)
directory.

Some further examples for various aspects of GStreamer and how to use it from
Rust can be found in the
[examples](https://github.com/sdroege/gstreamer-rs/tree/master/examples)
directory.
