Hi everybody,

The third pre-release of gst-openmax is ready:


gst-openmax is a GStreamer plug-in that allows communication with OpenMAX IL components.

OpenMAX IL is an industry standard that provides an abstraction layer for computer graphics, video, and sound routines. It has been pushed specially by key industry players in embedded systems.

For more information please visit:


New component wrappers:

 * WMV dec
 * H.263, H.264 enc
 * AAC, AMR-NB, AMR-WB enc
 * ADPCM, G.711, G.729, iLBC enc/dec

Among the important changes is that now the most important element (base-filter) has been redesigned to fix a lot of possible threading issues. Along with this change comes the addition of unit tests, for which a dummy OpenMAX IL implementation was created.

Also many bugfixes all over the place.

The plan is to do a couple more bug-fixes, possibly merge the tunneling branch (thanks to Frederik Vernelen from NXP) and the aim for the first release, for which if I understand correctly documentation and translation stuff is needed.

Bugs resolved:

 * 527125: OMX AAC decoder should accept MPEG versions 2 and 4
 * 517185: queue not emptied

Contributors to this release:

 * Stefan Kost

The GstOpenMAX team
