GStreamer is a library for constructing graphs of media-handling components. We choose Gstreamer as the very media framework platform in Rockchip's Linux SDK and Linux distribution. With the helper of the Gstreamer, you can handle all the video stream protocol, file format and media storage with only one Command line.


You can download the other Gstreamer components like Gstreamer plugins base, Gstreamer plugins good from the Gstreamer official website.

Gstreamer rockchip would need rockchip mpp development files for media function, and ARM Mali for the OpenGL ES/EGL.



Like all the other Gstreamer plugins, you must install the libraries into Gstreamer plugins search path. Usually it would be /usr/lib/gstreamer-1.0 or /usr/lib/aarch64-linux-gnu/gstreamer-1.0
