What's cooking in GStreamer

This talk will take a look at what's been happening in the GStreamer multimedia framework as of late and what shiny new features you can expect to land in the near future.

It is targeted at both application developers and anyone interested in multimedia on the Linux desktop and elsewhere.

GStreamer is a highly versatile plugin-based multimedia framework that caters to a whole range of multimedia needs, whether desktop applications, streaming servers or multimedia middleware; embedded systems, desktops, or server farms. It is also cross-platform and works on Linux, *BSD, Solaris, OS/X, Windows, iOS and Android.

In late 2012 GStreamer 1.0 was released, the next generation of the rather successful GStreamer 0.10.x API series. 1.2 was released just about year later towards the end of 2013 sporting quite a few new features. With 1.4 already in the making and 1.6 on the horizon, we'll take a bird's eye view at what's new and improved and what upcoming new features you can look forward to.

Does hardware-accelerated video playback finally work out of the box on the Linux desktop? Can you get a list of available devices now? Does Blu-ray playback work? How about OpenGL? Will it work on Wayland? Can you use it on the Raspberry Pi?

Join us to find out!
