       gst-inspect-1.0 - print info about a GStreamer plugin or element

       gst-inspect-1.0 [OPTION...] [PLUGIN|ELEMENT]

       gst-inspect-1.0 is a tool that prints out information on available GStreamer plugins, information about a particular plugin,
       or information about a particular element.  When executed with no PLUGIN or ELEMENT argument, gst-inspect-1.0 will  print  a
       list  of all plugins and elements together with a summary.  When executed with a PLUGIN or ELEMENT argument, gst-inspect-1.0
       will print information about that plug-in or element.

       gst-inspect-1.0 accepts the following arguments and options:

       PLUGIN  Name of a plugin

       ELEMENT Name of an element

       --help  Print help synopsis and available FLAGS

               GStreamer info flags to set (list with --help)

       -a, --print-all
               Print all plugins and elements

       -b, --print-blacklist
               Print list of blacklisted files

               List the plugin contents

               Allow inspecting only elements that match all the element types filtered in this slash (´/´) separated list of  ele‐
               ment  types. Those types correspond to what is also called ´klass´ which is a string describing the type of element,
               like ´Decoder´, ´Audio´, ´Encoder´ etc... This options implies that only elements  will  be  printed  (not  typefind
               functions or tracers).

               Check if the specified element or plugin exists

               When checking if an element or plugin exists, also check that its version is at least the version specified

       -u, --uri-handlers
               Print supported URI schemes, with the elements that implement them

               Disable  colors  in output. You can also achieve the same by setting ´GST_INSPECT_NO_COLORS´ environment variable to
               any value.

       -C, --color
               Color output, even when not connected to a tty.

               Print a machine-parsable list of features the specified plugin provides.  Useful in connection with  external  auto‐
               matic plugin installation mechanisms.

               GStreamer debugging flags to set (list with --help)

               GStreamer info and debugging flags to set (list with --help)

               GStreamer info flags to set Enable printout of errors while loading GStreamer plugins

               Add directories separated with ':' to the plugin search path

       gst-inspect-1.0  reads  the following environment variables, in addition to the generic GStreamer environment variables also
       described in gst-launch-1.0(1):

               Override the options passed to less (by default "RXF").
