GStreamer is a streaming media framework, based on graphs of filters
which operate on media data. Applications using this library can do
anything from real-time sound processing to playing videos, and just
about anything else media-related. Its plugin-based architecture means
that new data types or processing capabilities can be added simply by
installing new plug-ins.
This package contains the GStreamer plugins for X11 video output, both
for standard Xlib support and for the Xv extension, as well as the
plugin for Pango-based text rendering and overlay.
