Building

gst-plugins-rs relies on cargo-c to generate shared and static C libraries. It can be installed using:

$ cargo install cargo-c

Then you can easily build and test a specific plugin:

$ cargo cbuild -p gst-plugin-cdg
$ GST_PLUGIN_PATH="target/x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu/debug:$GST_PLUGIN_PATH" gst-inspect-1.0 cdgdec

Replace x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu with your system's Rust target triple (rustc -vV).

The plugin can also be installed system-wide:

$ cargo cbuild -p gst-plugin-cdg --prefix=/usr
$ cargo cinstall -p gst-plugin-cdg --prefix=/usr

This will install the plugin to /usr/lib/gstreamer-1.0. You can use --libdir to pass a custom lib directory such as /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu for example.

Note that you can also just use cargo directly to build Rust static libraries and shared C libraries. cargo-c is mostly useful to build static C libraries and generate pkg-config files.

In case cargo complains about dependency versions after a git pull, cargo update may be able to resolve those.
