Gstreamer-player-1.0 not Found, though gstreamer Is Installed and Newest Available Version


I’m presently trying to compile gtksoucreview-5.3.2 on Debian GNU/Linux Bullseye Stable. When trying to install the gstreamer1.0-x package via the APT, the output says that I already have version 1.18.4-2 installed. However, I get this error when running meson build:

subprojects/gtk/modules/media/ ERROR: Dependency "gstreamer-player-1.0" not found, tried pkgconfig and cmake

Thanks in advance for any help, and God bless.

Here’s my Meson log.

You need the development package for gstreamer-player-1.0. On Debian it is provided by libgstreamer-plugins-bad1.0-dev.

I would strongly advise against developing with bleeding edge dependencies on Debian stable.

I would recommend using GNOME Builder and Flatpak, instead, so you can avoid having to deal with dependencies.
