gst-xmllaunch - build and run a GStreamer pipeline from an XML serialization
XML-FILE [ ELEMENT.PROPERTY=VALUE ... ]
gst-xmllaunch is a tool that is used to build and run a basic
GStreamer pipeline, loading it from an XML description. You can
produce the XML description using gst-launch-0.10(1) with the -o option or by
calling gst_xml_write_file() in your own app.
A simple commandline looks like:
gst-xmllaunch my-pipeline.xml filesrc0.location=music.mp3
This sets the location property of the element named filesrc0 to the value
"music.mp3". See gst-launch(1) for syntax on setting element names, and
gst-inspect to see what properties various elements have.
You can pass "-" as the XML-FILE to read from stdin.
XML-FILE can be a URI as well, thanks to the wizardry of libxml. I'm not really
sure what all is supported, it seems http works just fine though.
is deprecated and broken for all but the most simple
pipelines. It will most likely be removed in future. Don't use it.
