[glsdk/gst-plugins-ugly0-10.git] / REQUIREMENTS
1 GStreamer uses a *large* array of tools and libraries, most of which are
2 optional.  We have attempted to make sure that any code that depends on
3 optional libraries doesn't get built unless you have those libraries.  If
4 you find this not to be the case, please, let us know by filing a bug
5 report at http://bugzilla.gnome.org/.
