Description Mart Raudsepp 2014-07-16 12:37:55 UTC
Currently it doesn't seem the environment flags GST_GL_PLATFORM, GST_GL_API and GST_GL_WINDOW are documented anywhere - e.g under "Running GStreamer" or even just glimagesink documentation as the primary library consumer right now.

They should be documented somewhere as knobs to turn to get stuff going when multiple platforms, apis or windowing systems are enabled, as automatic correct picking doesn't seem to really work out in practice (yet?)
