33 <application>gstreamer</application> is a streaming media framework that
34 enables applications to share a common set of plugins for tasks such as
35 video encoding and decoding, audio encoding and decoding, audio and video
36 filters, audio visualisation, web streaming and anything else that
37 streams in real-time or otherwise. This package only provides base
38 functionality and libraries. You may need at least <xref
39 linkend="gst10-plugins-base"/> and one of Good, Bad, Ugly or Libav
40 plugins.
