While trying to solve an issue about loading MPEG videos in Matlab, I found several suggestions to install the FFmpeg plugin for Gstreamer.

However, I can't find this functionality on Debian 9 [1]. It was available on Debian 7, though [2].

This is not really an XY question. I'm still looking for alternatives for my issue with Matlab, but I am also interested in knowing what changed in Gstreamer or if I'm assuming anything wrong. Is there another package that supplies the functionality I was expecting from gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg?

[1] - https://packages.debian.org/search?suite=default&section=all&arch=any&searchon=names&keywords=gstreamer1.0-ffmpeg
[2] - https://packages.debian.org/search?suite=default&section=all&arch=any&searchon=names&keywords=gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg


It was renamed to gstreamer-libav

  • Is it a transparent replacement for gstreamer-ffmpeg? – giusti Sep 1 '17 at 15:53
