gst-xmllaunch-0.8

GStreamer(1)                General Commands Manual               GStreamer(1)



NAME
       gst-xmllaunch - build and run a GStreamer pipeline from an XML
       serialization

SYNOPSIS
       gst-xmllaunch [OPTION...] XML-FILE [ ELEMENT.PROPERTY=VALUE ... ]

DESCRIPTION
       gst-xmllaunch is a tool that is used to build and run a basic GStreamer
       pipeline, loading it from an XML description. You can produce the XML
       description using gst-launch-0.8(1) with the -o option or by calling
       gst_xml_write_file() in your own app.

       A simple commandline looks like:

        gst-xmllaunch my-pipeline.xml filesrc0.location=music.mp3

       This sets the location property of the element named filesrc0 to the
       value "music.mp3". See gst-launch(1) for syntax on setting element
       names, and gst-inspect to see what properties various elements have.

       You can pass "-" as the XML-FILE to read from stdin.

       XML-FILE can be a URI as well, thanks to the wizardry of libxml. I'm
       not really sure what all is supported, it seems http works just fine
       though.
