Recently I've got an idea to turn my DXR3 card to DLNA device - a DMR that I
could control from my tablet. Things looked simple. There is Cling
project reusing gstreamer-java and working fine. The whole problem was to
adopt it to output to DXR3.
I knew there was DXR3 support in GStreamer few years ago, so I thought I'll
make it in a day. But alas, dxr3videosink is not installed on my Ubuntu
I started to dig the sources, and found out that in-spite the sources exist
in sys/dxr3 directory of the gst-plugins-bad repository, they are not
included in configure.ac. Looks like the reference to them has been removed
$ git show 646e2af
+ Christian Schaller <uraeus at gnome.org>
+ * Update configure.ac and Makefiles to only build what is actually
+ ported and not moved into gst-plugins-base
But then I found out that there are commits in sys/dxr3 even from 2011!
Maybe it is not completely abandoned.
What is the status? Is DXR3 still supported? If so, what is the right way to
Thanks in advance for spending your time and helping me understand.
PS: To adjust level of answers: I can read and modify C code. I have little
experience with autoconf, automake & co. beyond executing them.
