GStreamer

framework

GStreamer is a pipeline-based multimedia framework that links together a wide variety of media processing systems to complete complex workflows. For instance, GStreamer can be used to build a system that reads files in one format, processes them, and exports them in another. The formats and processes can be changed in a plug and play fashion.

GStreamer follows Semantic Versioning. Moreover GStreamer is using the following version policy:

  • Stable releases (ready for production use) are even numbers, such as 1.0, 1.2 or 1.4.
  • Development releases are odd numbers, such as 1.1, 1.3 or 1.5.

The support and EOL policy is not clearly defined. But, looking at the releases history, there is at least a x.y release every year which is supported for at least a year with important bug fixes.

More information is available on the GStreamer website.

You should be running one of the supported release numbers listed above in the rightmost column.

You can check the version that you are currently using by running:
gst-inspect-1.0 --version
