Introduction to GStreamer Good Plug-ins

The GStreamer Good Plug-ins is a set of plug-ins considered by the GStreamer developers to have good quality code, correct functionality, and the preferred license (LGPL for the plug-in code, LGPL or LGPL-compatible for the supporting library). A wide range of video and audio decoders, encoders, and filters are included.

Installation of GStreamer Good Plug-ins

[Note]

Note

If you need a plugin for a given dependency, that dependency needs to be installed before this package.

Install GStreamer Good Plug-ins by running the following commands:

mkdir build &&
cd    build &&

meson  --prefix=/usr       \
       --buildtype=release \
       -Dpackage-origin=https://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/view/svn/ \
       -Dpackage-name="GStreamer 1.20.3 BLFS" &&
ninja

To test the results, issue: ninja test. One test, elements_rtpbin is known to fail on some systems.

Now, as the root user:

ninja install

Command Explanations

--buildtype=release: Specify a buildtype suitable for stable releases of the package, as the default may produce unoptimized binaries.
