GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 510393
Migrate from GnomeVFS to GIO
Last modified: 2008-01-18 14:00:43 UTC
GnomeVFS is going to be deprecated, new vfs framework for GNOME and GTK+
application is GIO/GVFS, available from glib 2.16.0. GStreamer should be ported
to GIO API.
In short: "GIO is a gobject-based library that abstracts out various forms of
I/O, designed to separate out dependencies by allowing apps to depend on
abstract APIs, and then letting various implementations fill in these APIs.
GVFS is one such implementation, similar to gnome-vfs, which plugs into gio."
For references see:
Note: filed as "don't know" 'cause I really don't know if it's better use gio directly in gstreamer (yet depends on glib) or just as replacement/upgrade for GnomeVFS plugins in gst-plugins-base.
The ext/gio directory in CVS module gst-plugins-bad has a source, sink and some stream handlers.
