Written by Michael Larabel in Multimedia on 20 January 2015 at 07:36 PM EST. 1 Comment
Jan Schmidt spoke last week at Linux.Conf.Au 2015 about the State of the GStreamer project and some of their interesting accomplishments recently along with some of they work they have moving forward.

Schmidt went thoroughly over what GStreamer is all about and its history as a leading open-source multimedia project, the current work with GStreamer 1.x, and some of the work-in-progress items. Among the items being tackled (or to be worked on soon) include stereoscopic 3D video/movie support, a new device probing ABI, new higher level APIs, support for new codecs and formats, KLV support, DVB-MPEG-TS improvements, improved Wayland support, better live mixing capabilities, and V4L2 encoder/decoder support. Those living under a stone that aren't familiar with GStreamer can visit their project site for details.
