How do I get the current gstreamer?

Sun Jul 17, 2016 9:41 pm

Hi,
I need a current gstreamer since I need some bugfixes. Problem is that the latest version I get on an update/upgrade is 1.4.4. The latest stable release is 1.8.2.
How do I get the current version?
I'm using raspbian jessie as of 2016-03-18. Would it be enough to use a more current raspbian?

Thanks!

Code: Select all

apt-get build-dep 
This grabs the build dependencies for a given program.

Code: Select all

nano /etc/apt/sources.list 
Make sure deb-src is on there somewhere. If it is not, simply copy and paste the raspbian repository and add deb-src in front of it.

Code: Select all

apt-get update
Make sure you do this so apt can now find the sources repository.

Code: Select all

git clone git.blahblahblah
Most people use git these days. To grab the source code copy the git link.

Once it downloads, read the README file for compile instructions.

https://github.com/GStreamer/gstreamer
So you will need build-essential, autoconf, automake, and libtool to configure and build

Code: Select all

chmod +x autogen.sh

Code: Select all

./autogen.sh
Looks like fun.

Thanks for your answer!
I hoped that I can avoid compiling the whole gstreamer stack on the Pi.
