Release notes for GStreamer OpenGL Plug-ins 0.10.1 "Le Fromage De La Belle France"

The GStreamer team is proud to announce a new release in the 0.10.x stable series of the GStreamer OpenGL 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.

Please note that at this time, the GStreamer GL plugins module is not considered API/ABI stable, and public interfaces may change from release to release.

This module contains integration libraries and plug-ins for using OpenGL within GStreamer pipelines. This module contains elements for, among others:

  • output: glimagesink
  • adapters: glupload, gldownload
  • video processing: gldeinterlace, glcolorscale
  • GL effects: glfiltersobel, glfilterblur, gleffects, others
  • sources: gltestsrc
Other modules containing plug-ins are:
contains a basic set of well-supported plug-ins
contains a set of well-supported plug-ins under our preferred license
contains a set of well-supported plug-ins, but might pose problems for distributors
contains a set of less supported plug-ins that haven't passed the rigorous quality testing we expect
