Gstreamer 1.4 on the Beaglebone #BeagleBoneBlack @TXInstruments @BeagleBoardOrg
Alexandru Csete put together a quick tutorial on how to get Gstreamer 1.4.3 on a BeagleBone running a console image by Robert C. Nelson based on Debian Wheezy.
Debian Wheezy comes with the old Gstreamer 0.10 and as far as I could tell the new gstreamer isn’t even available through backports. It is however available in Debian Jessie (testing).
Although Robert C. Nelson has started making Beaglebone images based in Debian testing, at the present only a “lxqt emmc flasher” image is available and that’s not good for me. I need a console image and I need it on the SD card.
The solution was to start with a clean Debian Wheezy console image and upgrade it to wheezy on the Beaglebone. It’s actually very easy.
