gst-launch is a tool that builds and runs basic GStreamer pipelines.

In simple form, a PIPELINE-DESCRIPTION is a list of elements separated by exclamation marks (!). Options may be appended to elements, in the form "option=value". A group of elements surrounded by curly braces {, } will be executed in a separate thread.

This page presents a wide variety of examples using the gst-launch command using many different available elements for users to test.

The examples assume that you have the correct plug-ins available. In general, "osssink" can be substituted with another audio output plug-in such as "esdsink", "alsasink", or "artsdsink". Likewise, "xvideosink" can be substituted with "sdlvideosink" or "aasink".
