PostPosted: Fri 08 Jul 2011, 04:07    Post subject:  GStreamer & Eina  

GStreamer is a back end media player application, used in conjunction with quite a number of media player front ends, including the "big 3" Linux media players: Rhythmbox, Banshee and Amarok.

The problem with GStreamer is that it's LARGE. With the full complement of "good/ugly/bad" standard plugins, a GStreamer dotpet is 8.3 MB, and 20 MB installed. And at this point, there are still quite a few important codecs not supported by these standard plugins, so by adding the full "gst-ffmpeg" plugins, the package then increases further, to 11 MB, 26 MB installed !

I wanted an audio-only version of GStreamer as the companion application for gtkpod-2.0.2, which I just posted here -
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=59183
so I stripped back the standard plugins to include just the audio components, then I configured the gst-ffmpeg library to add support only for the important audio codecs not already supported by the standard GStreamer plugins; namely ALAC (Apple Lossless) and WMA.
Now the dotpet package is 5.4 MB, 13.3 MB installed. Get it here -

Some Puppy users may want a GStreamer-based audio player apart from gtkpod, so here's the well regarded front end, Eina. Obviously you must install the gstreamer dotpet from the first post as well.

You can see from the screenshot that album art is supported.

The Eina homepage is here
