GStreamer 1.2


Hey guys,

GStreamer 1.2 has been released a few days ago. It is a feature release,
and there some API additions that might interest us, in particular:

 • GL texture upload conversion meta for allowing different
   buffer types to be converted to an OpenGL texture
 • The stream-start even has an optional group-id field now to signal
   all streams that should be played together
 • GstVideoDecoder/Encoder has new ::flush() vfunc to replace the
   ill-defined ::reset() vfunc.
 • The URI query allows to query the redirected URI now.

I expect the first two items to be useful for Audience. Grouping streams
should greatly simplify supporting e.g. external soundtrack files (

The full release announcements can be found here:
Make sure to at least skim the "Things to look out for" section of it.
