Release notes for GStreamer libav Plugins 1.0.1

The GStreamer team is proud to announce a new release in the 1.x stable series of the core of the GStreamer streaming media framework.

The 1.x series is a stable series targeted at end users. It is not API or ABI compatible with the stable 0.10.x series. It is, however, parallel installable with the 0.10.x series and will not affect an existing 0.10.x installation.

This module contains plugins based on the libav project, including codecs.

Other modules containing plugins are:

contains a basic set of well-supported plugins
contains a set of well-supported plugins under our preferred license
contains a set of well-supported plugins, but might pose problems for distributors
contains a set of less supported plugins that haven't passed the rigorous quality testing we expect, or are still missing documentation and/or unit tests

Features of this release

  • Parallel installability with 0.10.x series
  • avviddec: handle 0-sized buffers without crashing
  • avviddec: don't set invalid latency
