+This is GStreamer gstreamer-vaapi 1.15.0.1.
+
+GStreamer 1.15 is the development version leading up to the next major
+stable version which will be 1.16.
+
+The 1.15 development series adds new features on top of the 1.14 series and is
+part of the API and ABI-stable 1.x release series of the GStreamer multimedia
+framework.
+
+Full release notes will one day be found at:
+
+ https://gstreamer.freedesktop.org/releases/1.16/
+
+Binaries for Android, iOS, Mac OS X and Windows will be provided shortly
+after the release.
+
+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
+
+ - 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
+
+ - 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.
+
+ - 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.
+
+ - 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
+
+ - gst-editing-services: library an plugins for non-linear editing
