Red Hat / Fedora To Focus On Driving New Linux Video Improvements Around PipeWire
As part of bolstering the Linux multimedia stack, Red Hat is going to be working on a fresh round of video feature work to PipeWire led by its founder Wim Taymans. In particular, the area they will be focusing on is improving the video capture support on Linux.
Long story short, they will be working on libcamera integration for PipeWire, maturing the GStreamer elements for PipeWire, collaborating with Google Chrome/Chromium and Mozilla Firefox on using PipeWire for their web camera integration, and other initiatives.
Red Hat meanwhile is looking for support from the community around testing of this forthcoming code as well as developer feedback.
Red Hat's Christian Schaller has written a blog post outlining their new video plans around PipeWire.
