Re: Are there Perl bindings for gstreamer-1.0?

I knew nothing about GStreamer a couple hours ago, but, since I have had a lot of dealings with perl/introspection of late, I went ahead and did some digging. Compiled with gstreamer-1.2.4.

So, first off, instead of: my $play = GStreamer::ElementFactory -> make("playbin", "play");
It should be: my $play = GStreamer::ElementFactory::make("playbin", "play");

Due to the class-static stuff.

I was, however, running into the same issue. I first verified that this works:

my $fake_factory = Glib::Object::Introspection->invoke ('Gst', 'ElementFactory', 'find', 'fakesrc');
my $fake_element = GStreamer::ElementFactory::create($fake_factory,"source");

After attempting a find on playbin, it would seem that the plugin simply isn't installed as the fakesrc is working. Looking at: plugins/elements/, I only see a handful of source files; playbin not being one of them.

That's when I remembered seeing a number of plugin subdirectories in

It looks like gst-plugins-base provides playbin. After installing, now the aforementioned playbin call returns correctly.

Well actually, it's amazing.  I've just been trying it.

It's not so easy to install you have to install libgirepository1.0-dev first (apt-get install libgirepository1.0-dev).

This code:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w
    use strict;

    use Glib::Object::Introspection;
    Glib::Object::Introspection->setup (basename => 'Gst', version => '1.0', package => 'GStreamer');
    my @version=();
    @version = GStreamer::version();
    print "This program is linked against GStreamer @version\n";
    my $i = GStreamer::init ([$0, @ARGV]);

Gave me "This program is linked against GStreamer 1 2 3 0".

However, when I tried:

    my $play = GStreamer::ElementFactory -> make("playbin", "play");

I get:

*** GStreamer::ElementFactory::make: passed too many parameters (expected 2, got 3); ignoring excess at ~/test_code/ line 129.

When I drop the final parameter, I get an empty string passed in $play.

Any ideas?
