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.
Each Tuesday is BeagleBone Black Day here Adafruit! What is the BeagleBone? The BeagleBones are a line of affordable single-board Linux computers (SBCs) created by Texas Instruments. New to the Bone? Grab one of our Adafruit BeagleBone Black Starter Packs and check out our extensive resources available on the Adafruit Learning System including a guide to setting up the Adafruit BeagleBone IO Python Library. We have a number of Bone accessories including add-on shields (called “capes”) and USB devices to help you do even more with your SBC. Need a nice display to go along with your Bone? Check out our fine selection of HDMI displays, we’ve tested all of them with the Beagle Bone Black!
