Description

This element is an audio/video multiplexer for MPEG-1/2 video streams and (un)compressed audio streams such as AC3, MPEG layer I/II/III. It is based on the mjpegtools library. Documentation on creating MPEG videos in general can be found in the

MJPEG Howto

and the man-page of the mplex tool documents the properties of this element, which are shared with the mplex tool.

Example pipeline

1
gst-launch-1.0 -v videotestsrc num-buffers=1000 ! mpeg2enc ! mplex ! filesink location=videotestsrc.mpg
This example pipeline will encode a test video source to an MPEG1 elementary stream and multiplexes this to an MPEG system stream.

If several streams are being multiplexed, there should (as usual) be a queue in each stream, and due to mplex' buffering the capacities of these may have to be set to a few times the default settings to prevent the pipeline stalling.
