If you need the development packets from gstreamer, you need to install the
'libgstreamer...-dev' packets.
Type 'sudo apt get install libgstreamer' and then press the key 'TAB'.
You will see all the development packets.
Install only the gstreamer1.0* will not install the development environment

Betreff: Using appsink on Ubuntu

Hi, I'm trying to include this in a program to use AppSink and this file
isn't found ...

#include <gst/app/gstappsink.h>

I'm on Ubuntu 16, and this file isn't found using:  
find / -name gstappsink.h

I installed with this:   
apt-get install -y gstreamer1.0*

Which puts files here:  /usr/include/gstreamer-1.0/gst

But there is no gst/app directory?

What do I have to install to get this?  Is there a dev package?  I seem to
have everything that I can find.
