gstreamer-sharp

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.

Prerequisites

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

Building

meson build && ninja -C build/

Installing

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')

HACKING

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 girs/.

ninja -C update-all
  • Verify newly copied gir files in girs/ and git add them
  • Verify newly generated code and git add files in sources/generated/ and ges/generated
  • Commit

Supported Platforms

  • Linux
  • Mac OS X

Quick Start

gstreamer-sharp provides ports of all samples from gst-docs in the samples folder.

Documentation

Since this is a gobject-introspection binding the recommended documentation is the native gstreamer documentation. A monodoc generated documentation will be installed.

Roadmap

  • Add an easy way to compile on Windows
  • iOS and Android support
  • Provide binaries for these platforms
