Development framework for creating media applications
[ excerpt from developer’s site ]
What is GStreamer? GStreamer allows the construction of graphs of media-handling components, ranging from simple mp3 playback to complex audio mixing and video non-linear editing processing. Applications can take advantage of advances in codec and filter technology transparently. Developers can add new codecs and filters by writing a simple plugin with a clean, generic interface. GStreamer is released under the LGPL, with many of the included plugins retaining the license of the code they were derived from, usually GPL or BSD.
