On the path to GStreamer 1.0

GStreamer maintainer and code god Wim Taymans just posted an update on the the progress of GStreamer 0.11 to the GStreamer development mailing list. For those interested in learning about the new features coming in GStreamer 1.0 this email (along with the previous update) is must read material.

In addition to the updates on the core coding work and important notice from Wim in his email is that the very first 0.11.x release will happen this week, so that you have a snapshot release to start playing with. GStreamer 1.0 is moving forward at a fast pace, so be prepared :)

Hopefully we can do a GStreamer 1.0 release part at the GStreamer Conference 2011!

So, GStreamer have no an official support of libva or another audio/vode hardware decoder?

libva support is being worked on, what is there today in terms of hardware support is a vdpau pugin in -bad and OpenMax support through the gstreamer-openmax module.

libva support is include in GStreamer >= 1.0 or it’s already supported by 0.10.34?

If I remember, It exist a gstreamer-vaapi plugin. But I can’t build it because of some errors. :(

At this point in time neither, but we are looking into it and hopefully when its done it will support both 0.10.x and 1.x versions of GStreamer

gstreamer-vaapi is outdated and I am not sure it even works anymore. We really need proper VA-API support (does VDPAU support reliably with h264 etc.?)

the vdpau plugins work fine … but don’t get auto-plugged correctly in playbin2, meaning totem (or any other gst player) won’t automatically pick them up. We’re working on that.
