Bug Description

Ubuntu 8.04

After upgrading from 7.10 to 8.04 the package gstreamer0.10-gl disappeared in the repository and was uninstalled during the upgarde process.
The problem is that on my computer the xvimagesink pipleline deos not work and the ximagesink pipeline give a non-smoothed image and is very slow.

So the best solution for me was to use the glimagesink pipeline, but now I connot do it anymore.

From gst-plugins-bad0.10's changelog:

      - Drop the OpenGL plugin. This will go to a new source package named
        gst-plugins-gl once we have mesa >= 7.1 somewhere.

That's nice. What do people who need to use gl output do in the meantime other than mplayer -vo gl2 ?

Well, glimagesink is still missing in 9.04 as well...

Still missing in karmic.... is it so hard to include in karmic?

Still missing in Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid) and so far this is still missing in Maverick (the beta is due next week).

What needs to be done to include this? Is there someone this should be assigned to? Or is it something I could assist with?

I can see from the remote bug watch ( that this package has now reached debian experimental. I found the package here:

Anyone trying to use the ATI XvBA extension for VA-API can't use accelerated gstreamer output without gstreamer0.10-plugins-gl
