Release notes for
GStreamer FFmpeg Plug-ins 0.10.2
"At the edge of Taymans"
The GStreamer team is proud to announce a new release
in the 0.10.x stable series of the
GStreamer FFmpeg Plug-ins.
The 0.10.x series is a stable series targeted at end users.
It is not API or ABI compatible with the stable 0.8.x series.
It is, however, parallel installable with the 0.8.x series.
This module contains plug-ins using libraries from the FFmpeg project.
Other modules containing plug-ins are:
- contains a basic set of well-supported plug-ins
- contains a set of well-supported plug-ins, but might pose problems for
- contains a set of less supported plug-ins that haven't passed the
rigorous quality testing we expect
Note: There is a known small regression in this release, playing some
H264 videos with unusual widths on some machines.
