GStreamer Application

This media backend uses the gstreamer framework to play and control audio and video files. In order to use this backend the platform must have gstreamer and the required plugins installed. It is a good idea to try and play content with the “gst-launch” application to ensure a proper installation before running gstreamer-backend. This backend also uses Storyboard IO for communication with the Storyboard application so please ensure Storyboard IO is functional and the application has the “greio” plugin loaded.


-e : Render the video content with an external buffer

-p pipeline: Use the defined gstreamer pipeline to play the media

-v: increase verbosity, debug output
