Speaking of how difficult GStreamer is to learn, Fluendo and Collabora have launched an official GStreamer SDK. (via Ars Technica)
The aim of the new SDK is to lower the barrier to entry for new GStreamer adopters and make it easier to use the framework across platforms.
A great tutorial for a framework that I found quite hard to use, mainly due to the terminology.
OK, lets get down and dirty about some of the GStreamer terminology. Some people get quite confused by some of the terms such as pads and caps, not to mention bins and ghost pads. It is all rather simple to understand when you get your head around it, so lets have a quick run around the houses and get to grips with it.
