The GStreamer pipeline is the top-level concept that encapsulates all the elements of a data processing flow. Or is it? There are good reasons why one might want to split the processing of data up into different pipelines, such as creating logical components, or preventing errors from affecting other processing.
Over the years, there have been many different approaches to the problem - leading to a bevy of elements for creating connection tunnels between pipelines.
This talk will discuss the available elements, what they each bring to the table and which ones you might want to use in which situations.
