New in version 1.8.0.

GstPlayer is a media player implemented specifically for Kivy with Gstreamer 1.0. It doesn’t use Gi at all and is focused on what we want: the ability to read video and stream the image in a callback, or read an audio file. Don’t use it directly but use our Core providers instead.

This player is automatically compiled if you have pkg-config –libs –cflags gstreamer-1.0 working.


This is an external library and Kivy does not provide any support for it. It might change in the future and we advise you don’t rely on it in your code.
