The annual GStreamer Conference took place last week in Berlin alongside the Linux Foundation's Embedded Linux Conference Europe. The videos from this multimedia open-source conference are now available.

The folks from Ubicast have once again done a nice job recording all of the presentations from this GStreamer event. Conference talks ranged from the "stage of the union" to the state of VA-API with GStreamer, GStreamer Video Editing, dynamic pipelines, Vulkan, and more.

When it comes to Vulkan support in GStreamer, there is work underway on vulkansink and vulkanupload elements, basic Vulkan support modeled on GStreamer's libgstgl API, and more, but much more work is needed before it will be at the level of OpenGL support.

The GStreamer State of the Union session should be of interest to most Linux desktop users with recent work done on the multimedia framework from multi-threaded VP8/VP9 happenings to Vulkan support to better Android support. Some futue work talked about was DMA-BUF support for Waylandsink and GST-VAAPI for zero-copy rendering, new APIs, more plugin work, continued work on the experimental Meson build system, and more.
