NAME

gst-install – installs missing GStreamer plugins

SYNOPSIS

gst-install [OPTIONS] plugin …

DESCRIPTION

Gst-install makes use of the PackageKit session D-Bus interface to
install missing GStreamer plugins, e.g. encoders, decoders or URI han‐
dlers. It isn’t supposed to be executed directly but instead by the
gst_install_plugins_async and gst_install_plugins functions of the
GStreamer base library gstpbutilsinstallplugins.

PackageKit or the alternative session-installer implementation will
handle the complete installation process with confirmation, progress
and error dialogs.

See the documentation of gstpbutilsinstallplugins for the argument con‐
struction and exit states.

OPTIONS

–transient-for
The X Window ID of the window which should be used as parents
for the dialogs
