Release notes for GStreamer 1.6.3

The GStreamer team is proud to announce the third bugfix release in the stable 1.6 release series of your favourite cross-platform multimedia framework!

This release only contains bugfixes and it is safe to update from 1.6.x. For a full list of bugfixes see Bugzilla.

See /releases/1.6/ for the full release notes.

This module, gstreamer, only contains core functionality. For actual media playback, you will need other modules.

gst-plugins-base
contains a basic set of well-supported plugins
gst-plugins-good
contains a set of well-supported plugins under our preferred license
gst-plugins-ugly
contains a set of well-supported plugins, but might pose problems for distributors
gst-plugins-bad
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
gst-libav
contains a set of codecs plugins based on libav (formerly gst-ffmpeg)
