gst-launch-ext - Run a predefined GStreamer pipeline
SYNOPSISgst-launch-ext filename [filename...]
gst-launch-ext is a tool that is used to run a basic predefined GStreamer pipeline. This application is only used as a quick test to ensure proper working of codecs and GStreamer. It doesn't handle more advancedfeatures like synchronisation.
All supported formats in GStreamer should be playable by simply typing:
It will also print out the pipeline it uses, so you can customize it usingcut and paste.
gst-launch-ext can be configured by creating a .gst file in yourhome directory. This is a perl-style configuration file and can overridethe defaults for audio and video output sinks.
Here is an example .gst file that implements the same defaults as hard-codedin the script :
AUDIOSINK = osssinkVIDEOSINK = ffmpegcolorspace ! xvimagesink
You can change osssink to esdsink or alsasink (if you havethe plug-in), and you can change xvimagesink to ximagesink, aasinkor sdlvideosink.
Other plug-ins might be used as well if GStreamer has them.
