GStreamer 1.12: Intel Media SDK support and more

With GStreamer 1.12’s first release candidate out for testing and the final release expected soon, here’s a look at some of the (many) new features that will be arriving with this release, including support for the EGL extension used by the i.MX6 Vivante proprietary driver, support for waylandsink DMABuf importation (which means you can get zerocopy media display under Wayland), support for the Fraunhofer FDK AAC encoder and decoder, and support for Intel’s Media SDK, the cross-platform API to access Intel’s hardware accelerated video encoder and decoder functions on Windows and Embedded Linux.
