Graphical editor for GStreamer multimedia pipelines

The GStreamer Pipeline Editor (gst-editor) is a graphical pipeline contruction and manipulation tool. Using the Gnome Canvas as the foundation, it lets users draw media pipelines very quickly. It's written as a library, so it can easily be embedded into applications, and reads and writes standard XML descriptions of pipelines. Additionally, it is threadsafe, supports rapid prototyping, has iterative, graphical bin sorting functionality, and is integrated with GStreamer's debugging subsystem.
