gstreamer how to

Hi, I was viewing and there was an extensive manual about what pipelines were and objects and other stuff. I need to work with a binding in C++ to gstreamer but they donīt have any. The good news is they have a binding for Perl, but it said using a library called GTK2::Perl. My LQ is this: has anyone used this form of programming before? and if they have could they please start me off from zero, starting at the "how to install" and on to how to work with the code directly in any IDE for Linux?

I haven't used it, but the install part should be easy. You may have Perl bindings for GTK2 already installed. If not, there's a package for your system. Just apt-get and you have it. Then you probably need a tutorial, like

If your whole application is written in C++ you need to re-design the architecture to make the C++ and Perl parts work together.

Also, I'm moving this thread to Programming.

The GStreamer C++ binding is under way according to the project pages.

However, don't you think it might be better to just use the C API from your C++ application instead if trying to use include PERL? Sounds rather complicated to me.

Look at Towel for an example how to do that.
