NAME

gst-xmllaunch – build and run a GStreamer pipeline from an XML serial‐
ization

SYNOPSIS

gst-xmllaunch [OPTION…] XML-FILE [ ELEMENT.PROPERTY=VALUE … ]

DESCRIPTION

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 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.

WARNING
gst-xmllaunch is deprecated and broken for all but the most simple
pipelines. It will most likely be removed in future. Don’t use it.
