hi, perhaps the easiest solution is to use 006. that version is compatible with 8.04…-FAT.tar.gz

it’s in the download page under the examples screenshots

anyway, this:

$ pkg-config gstreamer-0.10 --cflags
-pthread -I/usr/include/gstreamer-0.10 -I/usr/include/glib-2.0 -I/usr/lib/glib-2.0/include -I/usr/include/libxml2

doesn’t install gstreamer.

if you really need to install 0061, you can try asking the gstreamer specific questions in the gstreamer list. i don’t really know how to install gstreamer in an specific ubuntu version or if it’s possible at all because of incompatibilities with other libraries versions.

thank you very much
i realy do not know which is sutible for video streaming v0.061 or v0.06
if v0.06 is work ok in video i have no problem and using it

now i will try to install v0.06 and back you.

thank you

I too would suggest using 60 and not 61. 61 is far to painful to get working on hardy.

Hello everyone,

I was wondering… Does this also apply to an installation of 0.61 on ubuntu 9.04?

I tried this morning for fun, and got the same error message while running the install_dependencies script.



in 9.04, you can install a newer version of gstreamer without problem using this ubuntu ppa:…-rchive/ppa

just go to system > administration > software sources and add this repositories:

deb…-ppa/ubuntu jaunty main
deb-src…-ppa/ubuntu jaunty main

works like a charm. Thanks a lot for sorting me out.
