gst-device-monitor-1.0 - Simple command line testing tool for GStreamer device monitors


gst-device-monitor-1.0 is a command line tool that can be used to test GStreamer's device monitoring functionality. By default it will just print a list of all devices found and exit, but you can also make it wait around for more devices by passing the --follow option. You can also pass it one or more filter arguments to filter the kind of devices you are interested in.

gst-device-monitor-1.0 accepts the following options:

Print help synopsis and available command line options
Print version and exit
Don't exit after showing the initial device list, but wait for devices to be added or removed
