GStreamer is a huge collection of objects, interfaces, libraries and plugins for constructing graphs of media-handling components.
An application typically would use just one utility library to process media streams. The library interface is actually a facade to a versatile collection of dynamic modules that implement the actual functionality (for example, source, filters and sink concept). The GStreamer core hides the complexity of timing issues, synchronization, buffering, threading, streaming and other functionalities that are needed to produce a usable media application.
