Hi guys,

I have nexus 7 tablet and Ubuntu touch is installed on it. I want to see a
RTSP stream using Gstreamer.
I have installed gstreamer1.0-tools gstreamer1.0-plugins-good
gstreamer1.0-plugins-ugly gstreamer1.0-plugins-bad.

I have also tried to install "gstreamer1.0-ffmpeg" but then it gives an
error. I read on other websites and it says that you have to install
"gstreamer1.0-libav" though I have not yet installed as I don't have a
proper idea about it.

Line on terminal:
gst-launch-1.0 rtspsrc connection-speed=100000 latency=0 buffer-mode=none
location=rtsp://admin:12345@<IP address>:8554/stream ! rtph264depay !
ffdec_h264 ! ffmpegcolorspace ! deinterlace mode=interlaced ! fpsdisplaysink
sync=false -v

Please suggest me what will be the solution for this. How can I overcome the
problem of ffpmeg and How can I get the stream on tablet?

Thanks in advance.
