Release notes for GStreamer Base Plug-ins 0.10.12 "Zombie Horde"

The GStreamer team is proud to announce a new release in the 0.10.x stable series of the GStreamer Base 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 a set of reference plugins, base classes for other plugins, and helper libraries. This module is kept up-to-date together with the core developments. Element writers should look at the elements in this module as a reference for their development. This module contains elements for, among others:

  • device plugins: x(v)imagesink, alsa, v4lsrc, cdparanoia
  • containers: ogg
  • codecs: vorbis, theora
  • text: textoverlay, subparse
  • sources: audiotestsrc, videotestsrc, gnomevfssrc
  • network: tcp
  • typefind
  • audio processing: audioconvert, adder, audiorate, audioscale, volume
  • visualisation: libvisual
  • video processing: ffmpegcolorspace
  • aggregate elements: decodebin, playbin
Other modules containing plug-ins are:
gst-plugins-good
contains a set of well-supported plug-ins under our preferred license
gst-plugins-ugly
contains a set of well-supported plug-ins, but might pose problems for distributors
gst-plugins-bad
contains a set of less supported plug-ins that haven't passed the rigorous quality testing we expect

Please note that decodebin2 API included in this release is still considered unstable and WILL change in future releases. At this stage, only developers or early adopters should consider using the decodebin2 API embodied in its signals and properties.

Features of this release

  • New API for on-demand plugin installation
  • Xv thread-safety and configuration enhancements
  • decodebin2 improvements
  • Support more raw audio format conversions
  • Improvements in Ogg support
  • AudioFilter base class ported to 0.10
  • Fixes for subtitles
  • Latency/live-playback support for Alsa
  • Lots of bug fixes and improvements
