gstreamer-sharp is a .NET/mono binding for Gstreamer generated from gobject-introspection data using the bindinator. gstreamer-sharp currently wraps the API exposed by Gstreamer 1.12 and is compatible with newer gstreamer versions. It was developed under GSoC 2014 for the mono organization. gstreamer-sharp covers the core and base gstreamer libraries.
These libraries are needed for gstreamer-sharp to compile:
- gstreamer core, base and good 1.14 or higher
- gtk-sharp 3.22.0 or higher - NOTE: This can be built as a meson subproject.
You will also need various .NET/mono bits (mcs and al). On debian-based distros you can install these with:
sudo apt-get install mono-mcs mono-devel
meson build && ninja -C build/
This package is not installed as part of the system. It should either be built into a Nuget or used as a subproject like this. For example, with meson, one would use it like this:
subproject('gstreamer-sharp', default_options: ['install=false']) gst_sharp = subproject('gstreamer-sharp') gst_sharp_dep = gst_sharp.get_variable('gst_sharp_dep')
While hacking on the code generator or the
.metadata files, you will
need to force code regeneration with
ninja update-code, a full rebuild
is triggered right after.
Updating to new GStreamer version
Make sure you are in an environement where latest
.gir files are available (either installed
or through the
$GI_TYPELIB_PATH env var), those files are automatically copied to
ninja -C update-all
- Verify newly copied gir files in
- Verify newly generated code and
git addfiles in
- Mac OS X
gstreamer-sharp provides ports of all samples from gst-docs in the samples folder.
Since this is a gobject-introspection binding the recommended documentation is the native gstreamer documentation. A monodoc generated documentation will be installed.
- Add an easy way to compile on Windows
- iOS and Android support
- Provide binaries for these platforms
