GStreamer uses a *large* array of tools and libraries, most of which are
2 3
optional. We have attempted to make sure that any code that depends on
optional libraries doesn't get built unless you have those libraries. If
4
you find this not to be the case, please, let us know by filing a bug
5
report at http://bugzilla.gnome.org/.

On Debian/Ubuntu, the easiest way to install most build requirements is:

        sudo apt-get build-dep gst-plugins-good1.0

URL:            http://gstreamer.freedesktop.org/
DebianPackage:  libgstreamer1.0-dev
Notes:          The required version is updated frequently, so the version
                listed in this file is often out of date. If you are compiling
                from git master, you will usually need GStreamer core and
                gst-plugins-base from git master as well.

Notes:		Used by many plugins for accelerating SIMD processing using
                run-time generated assembly. Not a hard requirement, but
                highly recommended. Packagers, please hard-depend on liborc.
