-The GStreamer team is proud to announce the fourth bugfix release in the stable
+The GStreamer team is pleased to announce the fifth bugfix release in the stable
1.12 release series of your favourite cross-platform multimedia framework!
This release only contains bugfixes and it is safe to update from 1.12.x. For a
-full list of bugfixes see Bugzilla.
+full list of bugfixes see Bugzilla and the release notes.
-See /releases/1.12/ for the full release notes.
+The 1.12 stable series is now superseded by the 1.14 stable series, and 1.12.5
+will likely be the last bugfix release in the 1.12 series.
+Full release notes can be found at:
-"When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk."
+Binaries for Android, iOS, Mac OS X and Windows will be provided shortly
+after the release.
-There are times when the world needs a color between black and white.
-Quality code to match the good's, but two-timing, backstabbing and ready to
-sell your freedom down the river. These plugins might have a patent noose
-around their neck, or a lock-up license, or any other problem that makes you
-think twice about shipping them.
+This module will not be very useful by itself and should be used in conjunction
+with other GStreamer modules for a complete multimedia experience.
+ - gstreamer: provides the core GStreamer libraries and some generic plugins
-We don't call them ugly because we like them less. Does a mother love her
-son less because he's not as pretty as the other ones ? No - she commends
-him on his great personality. These plugins are the life of the party.
-And we'll still step in and set them straight if you report any unacceptable
-behaviour - because there are two kinds of people in the world, my friend:
-those with a rope around their neck and the people who do the cutting.
+ - gst-plugins-base: a basic set of well-supported plugins and additional
+ media-specific GStreamer helper libraries for audio,
+ video, rtsp, rtp, tags, OpenGL, etc.
+ - gst-plugins-good: a set of well-supported plugins under our preferred
+ license
-This module contains a set of plugins that have good quality and correct
-functionality, but distributing them might pose problems. The license
-on either the plugins or the supporting libraries might not be how we'd
-like. The code might be widely known to present patent problems.
-Distributors should check if they want/can ship these plugins.
+ - gst-plugins-ugly: a set of well-supported plugins which might pose
+ problems for distributors
+ - gst-plugins-bad: a set of plugins of varying quality that have not made
+ their way into one of core/base/good/ugly yet, for one
+ reason or another. Many of these are are production quality
+ elements, but may still be missing documentation or unit
+ tests; others haven't passed the rigorous quality testing
+ we expect yet.
-Other modules containing plugins are:
+ - gst-libav: a set of codecs plugins based on the ffmpeg library. This is
+ where you can find audio and video decoders and encoders
+ for a wide variety of formats including H.264, AAC, etc.
+ - gstreamer-vaapi: hardware-accelerated video decoding and encoding using
+ VA-API on Linux. Primarily for Intel graphics hardware.
-contains a basic set of well-supported plugins
-contains a set of well-supported plugins under our preferred license
-contains a set of less supported plugins that haven't passed the
- rigorous quality testing we expect, or are still missing documentation
- and/or unit tests
-contains a set of codecs plugins based on libav (formerly gst-ffmpeg)
+ - gst-omx: hardware-accelerated video decoding and encoding, primarily for
+ embedded Linux systems that provide an OpenMax
+ implementation layer such as the Raspberry Pi.
+ - gst-rtsp-server: library to serve files or streaming pipelines via RTSP
-Bugs fixed in this release
- * 791301 : cdio: Fails to build with cdio 1.0
+ - gst-editing-services: library an plugins for non-linear editing
