GStreamer should mention the Plugins

Reported by: Randy McMurchy Owned by: Randy McMurchy
Priority: normal Milestone: 6.2.0
Component: BOOK Version: SVN
Severity: normal Keywords: GStreamer Plug-ins good bad ugly


At a minimum, the BLFS book needs to include the "good" plug-ins package. Additionally, a mention of the "bad" and "ugly", and especially the "ffmpeg" plugins should be on this page as well.

In fact, the ffmpeg plugins should probably have its own BLFS page.

I agree. "base" and "good" should definitely be in the book. I have "bad" and "ugly" installed, but not "ffmpeg". You can also point to this page in case anyone wants to try the other plugins.

Summary: GStreamer Plug-insGStreamer should mention the Plugins
Type: enhancementdefect

For the 6.2 release of BLFS, we need to add a blurb in a new configuration section of the GStreamer page that mentions something along the lines of:

"To configure GStreamer for desired functionality, you'll need to install one or more of the GStreamer Plugin packages. See: (list URL's to Good, Ugly, Bad and FFMpeg plugins)"

After that, this ticket can be closed. If it is determined that the FFMpeg or Bad plugins need a home in BLFS, we can open a new ticket.

Added a note to the GStreamer and Plug-in packages about the various different plug-in packages available. There was no need to create a new configuration section.
