GNOME 3607 Published by

GStreamer Plugins 0.8.4 are now available

The 0.8.x series is a stable series aimed at end users. It is not API or ABI compatible with the stable 0.6.x series. It is, however, parallel installable with the 0.6.x series.

This module contains plugins providing media encoding and decoding, conversion, effects, and other elements that provide actual media handling functionality to the core. You need the GStreamer core module to make them work. The versions do not need to match exactly, as long as all of them are in the 0.8.x series.

The FFmpeg-based decoder element has been moved to its own module. If you want support for a lot of popular video formats, you need to install this module along with the GStreamer Core and Plugins. An FFmpeg-based colorspace element has been added to the Plugins however.
