GstVersion

GstVersion — GStreamer version macros.

Functions

Includes

#include <gst/gst.h>

Description

Use the GST_VERSION_* macros e.g. when defining own plugins. The GStreamer runtime checks if these plugin and core version match and refuses to use a plugin compiled against a different version of GStreamer. You can also use the macros to keep the GStreamer version information in your application.

Use the gst_version() function if you want to know which version of GStreamer you are currently linked against.

The version macros get defined by including "gst/gst.h".
