GStreamer Conference 2015

8-9 October 2015 · The Convention Centre Dublin · Dublin, Ireland

The 6th GStreamer Conference was again co-located with the Embedded Linux Conference Europe (ELCE) and LinuxCon Europe. The event was held on Thursday and Friday 8-9 October 2015 at the Convention Centre Dublin (CCD) in Dublin, Ireland.

Registration is now closed.

Post-conference follow-up

The 6th GStreamer Conference is now over. Thanks to everyone who attended, we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. Many thanks to our speakers who have again presented a fantastic range of topics, and last but not least of course a big thanks to our sponsors and partners without whom the conference would not have been possible in this form.

Talks have been recorded by Ubicast and will be put up on the GStreamer Conference videos web site once they're ready. We will announce on the mailing lists, Planet GStreamer and twitter when the videos are up.

Slides for some of the talks and the lightning talks can be found in the GStreamer Conference 2015 slides folder.

Linux Weekly News (LWN) have attended the conference and have been covering some of the talks (content might be subscriber only when initially published but is usually available freely for non-subscribers the week after):


The GStreamer Conference is a conference for developers, decision-makers, community members, industry partners, and anyone else interested in the GStreamer multimedia framework or Open Source and cross-platform multimedia.

Showcase or Lightning Talks

If you don't think you have enough material for a full talk, but perhaps just want to showcase something you're working on, or present a problem or challenge you are facing or have solved, and that you think might be interesting for others to hear about, why not submit a ca. 5-minute mini-talk for our lightning talk/showcase event?

Simply send a quick mail to above to reserve your slot (subject to availability). There is no deadline for Lightning Talk submissions, slots will be allocated on a first-come first-serve basis.

Social Event

There will again be a social event for registered attendees on Thursday 8 October 2015 in the evening from 19.00-23.00h at Toners Pub, 139 Lower Baggot Street, Dublin 2, D02 N231, between St Stephen's Green and Merrion Square (map).

Food and Drink will be provided, including vegetarian options.

Please don't forget to bring your badge.

Who should attend?

Anyone interested in open source cross-platform multimedia is encouraged to join us at the GStreamer Conference 2015. Whether you are a hobbyist or a student interested in the field of multimedia, or working for a company using or looking to use GStreamer in their products, this is the perfect event for you to network at and to learn more about the latest technological breakthroughs in and around GStreamer. The talks will target both developers and managers.


Registration is now open and will stay open until the conference.

Sign up for the GStreamer Conference here

There will be separate registration options for both professionals and for students and hobbyists:

Professional 275 USD incl. lunch (until 31 July)
Professional 385 USD incl. lunch (from 1 August)
Student/hobbyist 100 USD incl. lunch

The registration fee includes continental breakfast and lunch at the venue on both conference days.

For those uncertain about whether to register as a professional or hobbyist, the general rule is that if your company pays for you or sponsors you, you are a professional, and if you personally pay you are a student or hobbyist. If in doubt drop us a mail or just register as hobbyist. The important thing is that you'll make it to the conference!

Speakers who do a longer presentation will receive a discount code, so if you have submitted a talk or plan to submit a talk you may want to wait with registration until a decision has been made as to whether your proposal has been accepted.

Sponsors will receive a number of free registrations as part of their sponsorship package.

Call for Papers

The call for papers is now closed and talk proposals can no longer be submitted. Anyone who has submitted a talk proposal should have received an e-mail letting them know whether their proposal has been accepted.

Lightning talks may still be proposed.

This year's conference will take place in Dublin, Ireland.

Getting there

Dublin airport (DUB) is Ireland's main airport with good regional and international connections.


The conference will take place in Liffey Meeting Room 2 (2a and 2b) at The Convention Centre Dublin, which is located in Dublin's Docklands district not too far from the city centre.

The venue is just around the corner of the LUAS (light rail) Red Line Spencer Dock stop. It is also within half an hour walking distance or 10-minute taxi ride of most city centre locations and served by various bus routes.


If you have not booked your accommodation yet, it is advisable to do this as soon as possible.

The Linux Foundation had some hotel recommendations in the vicinity of the convention centre, all of which are sold out now, so you may have to look at places in other areas.

Most hotels in the city centre will be within walking distance (15-30mins) of the conference venue, or just a short taxi ride away. There is also public transport in form of busses and the LUAS light rail system. The convention centre is right next to the LUAS Spencer Dock stop which is on the Red Line.

Temple Bar is the name of the cultural/nightlife quarter which is popular with tourists and where also a lot of hotels are.

The following is just a small selection of hotels which may or may not be suitable. Dublin is an international business centre and tourist destination and as such has many hotels and hostels in all price categories. The below is merely a small selection, you can find more using the usual booking engines such as, or

These hotels are located within half an hour of the convention center and had at least a couple of rooms left at the time of writing, but there are many other hotels in the city which may be even better located or provide better value:

If you find any other places that might be worth mentioning here, please send us a mail.
