GStreamer supports MPEG-DASH through Dashbin

GStreamer supports MPEG-DASH through Dashbin | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

DASH is the new Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP standard from MPEG. This patch adds the support for DASH in GStreamer, through the new bin elementDASHBIN.

 

More in detail, the patch adds 3 new elements to the gst-plugins-bad-0.10.23plugin package:

1) mpdcommon: an helper library to browse and manage the DASH MPD manifestfiles;

2) mpdparse: the mpdparse plugin, that detects and parses the MPD manifestfiles;

3) dashbin: the DASH client, implemented as a src bin;

 

A simple usage example is:gst-launch \dashbin location=http://example.com/dash_manifest.mpd \! qtdemux ! queue ! ffdec_h264 ! xvimagesink

ST and Fraunhofer HHI Demonstrate World’s First Standard-Based 3D Adaptive Video-Streaming Software Receiver

ST and Fraunhofer HHI Demonstrate World’s First Standard-Based 3D Adaptive Video-Streaming Software Receiver | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

STMicroelectronics and Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute (HHI) today unveiled the industry’s first 3D video receiver based on the new MPEG-DASH standard for dynamic and adaptive HTTP streaming. The fully working prototype developed within the EU-funded COAST (Content Aware Searching and Streaming) project is being demonstrated at the Networked and Electronic Media (NEM) Summitin Torino, Italy on 27-29 September 2011.

 

HTTP streaming enables high-quality video delivery over IP to connected TV sets, set-top boxes and mobile terminals. Recently released by the 3GPP and MPEG groups, Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP (DASH) aims to simplify the deployment of broadband video streaming services across different network infrastructures and end devices, replacing the multitude of proprietary HTTP streaming protocols with one open, standardized solution. DASH defines formats for content preparation and tools for fast and efficient content adaptation. It supports trick modes, multi-language subtitles and audio tracks, ad insertion and multiple digital rights management technologies aimed at protecting content, and works with standard web-server and cache technologies.
