This year the GStreamer Conference happened in A Coruña, basically at home, along with the hackfest.
The conference was the first after a long hiatus of four years of pandemics. The community craved it and long expected it. Some igalians helped to the GStreamer Foundation and our warm community with the organization and logistics. I’m very thankful with my peers and the sponsors of the event. Personally, I’m happy with the outcome. Though, I ought to say, organizing a conference like this is quite a challenge and very demanding.
The conference were recorded and streamed by Ubicast. And you can watch any presentation of the conference in their GStreamer Archive.
This is the list of talks where fellow Igalians participated:
There were two days of conference. The following two were for the hackfest, at Igalia’s Head Quarters.
Prague is a beautiful city, though this year I couldn’t visit it as much as I wanted, since the Embedded Linux Conference Europe and the Open Source Summit also took place there, and Igalia, being a Linux Foundation sponsor, had a booth in the venue, where I talked about our work with WebKit, Snabb, and obviously, GStreamer.
But, let’s back to the GStreamer Hackfest and Conference.
One of the features that I like the most of the GStreamer project is its community, the people involved in it, by writing code, sharing their work with many others. They might appear a bit tough at beginning (or at least that looked to me) but in real they are all kind and talented persons. And I’m proud of consider myself part of this community. Nonetheless it has a diversity problem, as many other Open Source communities.
During the Hackfest, Hyunjun and I, met with Sree and talked about the plans for GStreamer-VAAPI, the new features in VA-API and libva and how we could map them to the GStreamer’s design. Also we talked about the future developments in the msdk elements, merged one year ago in gst-plugins-bad. Also, I talked a bit with Nicolas Dufresne regarding kmssink and DMABuf.
In the Conference, which happened in the same venue as the hackfest, I talked wit the authors of gstreamer-media-SDK. They are really energetic.
I delivered my usual talk about GStreamer-VAAPI. You can find the slides, as a web presentation, here. Also, as every year, our friends of Ubicast, recorded the talks, and made them available for streaming almost instantaneously:
