This year again, the GStreamer community is meeting to celebrate the spring season and get some work done!

Generously hosted by Axis in the beautiful Lund, Sweden, the hackfest is an occasion for the community to get together to bond, but also to co-ordinate the next half year of development of the GStreamer multimedia framework.

Collabora's multimedia team is, as always, very active in the development of GStreamer and is sending a strong delegation with Nicolas Dufresne, Zeeshan Ali, George Kiagiadakis and myself. Each of us comes with a set of tasks that we would like to see progress during this hackfest.

George wants to have a discussion on the support for planar audio, which means supporting zero copy between libraries like FFmpeg, WebRTC DSP and Jack which use planar as their native format. Olivier and Nicolas will discuss integrating the work of Omar Akkila who setup a continuous integration and automated testing (CI/AT) pipeline to run Gst-validate on a Raspberry Pi, and generally how to do CI/AT in the future for embedded systems and our transition to GitLab. Zeeshan wants to discuss plans to improve the support for interlaced formats and he wants to try to move parts of the GStreamer-Rust integration that are not specific to GStreamer to their own crate to be more easily reusable.

See you in Lund!
