License: LGPL20
GStreamer allows the construction of graphs of media-handling
components, ranging from simple mp3 playback to complex audio
(mixing) and video (non-linear editing) processing. Applications
can take advantage of advances in codec and filter technology
transparently. Developers can add new codecs and filters by writing
a simple plugin with a clean, generic interface. GStreamer is
released under the LGPL, with many of the included plugins retaining
the license of the code they were derived from, usually GPL or BSD.

- Features:
* Comprehensive Core Library
* Intelligent Plugin Architecture
* Extensive Development Tools

- Is GStreamer a media player?
No, GStreamer is a development framework for creating applications
like media players, video editors, streaming media broadcasters and
so on. That said, very good media players can easily be built on
top of GStreamer and we even include a simple yet functional
mediaplayer with GStreamer called Gst-Player

Update GStreamer1 ports to 1.12.2.

Rework the adding of dependancies in Mk/
Previous when using USE_GSTREAMER[1] it would just add the request modules to
BUILD/RUN_DEPENDS. This caused the qa script to complain because the old code
didn't implicit depend on the gstreamer1 and gstreamer1-plugins[-bad] ports for
the libraries they carried, even if they where present via the plugins! The new
code adds implicit depends on these ports so USE_GSTREAMER[1] using ports have
all the libraries included.

* The mad mp3 plugin was removed, mpg123 plugin also provides mp3 decoding.
Switch over ports that used the gstreamer1 mad plugin.
* gtksink plugin renamed -> gtk
* Hook up the sndio plugin into the framework
* Add some indirect dependacies where needed
* Reorder the plugin list in so only one plugin per line. When
changing plugins it doesn't result in multiple lines being changed.
* Remove mentions in of plugins mentions that where removed.
* Depend on libunwind on i386/amd64, GStreamer links to it if it is present.

By default libtool replaces -export-symbols <file> with -retain-symbols-file
<file> on ELF systems, but this doesn't really do what -export-symbols is
meant to do.  On GNU ELF systems it converts <file> to a simple version
script first and then uses -version-script instead of -retain-symbols-file.
Let USES=libtool patch libtool scripts to do this on all systems with GNU

Bump PORTREVISION on all ports where the build log contains -export-symbols.

audio/calf: This port builds a module that now exports only one function,
but it also builds a number of executables that link to this module and
expect to see other functions.  Because it's already a bit dodgy to link to
a module (libtool warns about this) let the module continue to export only
one function and instead build an ordinary library from the same source that
the executables can link to.  Fix a number of other issues in the same

When linking a library libA with a library libB using libtool, if
exists, libtool will add all libraries refers to (dependency_libs
field) to the linker command line and store them in the dependency_libs
field of  So everything that subsequently links with libA will also
link to these extra libraries.  This causes too much overlinking.

This commit modifies Mk/Uses/ so it empties the dependency_libs
field in .la libraries during staging.  However, because .la libraries have
very limited use when dependency_libs is empty it makes sense to completely
remove them during staging.

So with this commit USES=libtool is modified to remove .la libraries and a
new form (USES=libtool:keepla) is introduced in case they need to be kept
(dependency_libs is still emptied).

Add Gstreamer 1.0.7. This is the new stable version of the
Gstreamer multimedia framework.

Use the USE_GSTREAMER1 macro to select Gstreamer 1.0 plugins. A new chapter
for the porters handbook about gstreamer is a work in progress.

X related plugins are now stand alone. The gio plugin is now part of the
gstreamer1-plugins port and the oss plugins are now part of the
gstreamer1-plugins-good port.

Note that the pulseaudio plugin is missing because it needs a newer version
of pulseaudio. Also there are still a number of plugins from -bad which
haven't been ported to the 1.0 API yet.
