Description Angel Marin 2007-08-04 08:16:23 EDT
v4l2 plugin has been moved from p-p-bad to g-p-good >=0.10.5, though it's marked
as experimental so --enable-experimental must be used to get it built.

It'd be great to get v4l2 cameras working with gstreamer on F7 out of the box,
even with a experimental plugin :)
Comment 1 Adam Huffman 2007-08-08 17:40:09 EDT
Yes, I'd be keen to see this.  Cheese doesn't work with the camera on my Vaio
without it...
Comment 2 Bastien Nocera 2007-08-09 13:30:32 EDT
Why is it marked as experimental upstream?

As it been unmarked experimental in more recent versions (we're supposed to
upgrade to more recent versions of the package shortly).
Comment 3 Angel Marin 2007-08-09 13:41:44 EDT
v4l2 is still marked experimental on cvs HEAD.
Comment 4 Bastien Nocera 2007-08-09 13:48:10 EDT
Doesn't tell me why it's still marked experimental though...

Comment 5 Angel Marin 2007-08-09 13:55:18 EDT
Haven't found the info, but as it's been recently moved from p-p-bad I guess it
was just the safest approach. Anyway, would such a plugin hurt the stability of
users not using a v4l2 source?
Comment 6 Bastien Nocera 2007-08-13 04:07:21 EDT
gstreamer-plugins-good-0.10.6-2.fc8 has the v4l2 plugin now, for rawhide. F7
will get the plugin once bug 249598 is fixed.
