videomixer — Mix multiple video streams

Synopsis


Description

Videomixer2 can accept AYUV, ARGB and BGRA video streams. For each of the requested sink pads it will compare the incoming geometry and framerate to define the output parameters. Indeed output video frames will have the geometry of the biggest incoming video stream and the framerate of the fastest incoming one.

Videomixer will do colorspace conversion.

Individual parameters for each input stream can be configured on the GstVideoMixer2Pad.

A pipeline to demonstrate videomixer used together with videobox. This should show a 320x240 pixels video test source with some transparency showing the background checker pattern. Another video test source with just the snow pattern of 100x100 pixels is overlayed on top of the first one on the left vertically centered with a small transparency showing the first video test source behind and the checker pattern under it. Note that the framerate of the output video is 10 frames per second.
