[gst-devel] Camera pipelines

As gst's CameraBin implementation evolves, is there convergence to move towards improving it in the near term to take CameraBin out of the ugly plugin category and make it the default implementation for still and video preview+capture and may be even for video conferencing apps? More camera apps should then start using CameraBin so the application and gst will pretty much become a standard. There could be optional elements for certain post processing, but the pipeline should be standard.

There are different ways of implementing the preview and capture pipelines depending on the underlying hardware implementations out there today. Hence having standard pipelines for key use cases will enable targeting the underlying integration with V4L2 and other user/kernel level components. Today, I don't think this is the case. I'd appreciate if experts here can comment.
