What exactly are the dependencies for the Video library on Ubuntu

edited April 2017 in Library Questions


I have been using Processing for around six months now, and I am really loving it. I have learned a lot about coding through Processing and have really entered a new phase of my learning path.

Anyways, every time I try to run the camera or movie examples from the Video library after a fresh installation of Ubuntu I can't because I am missing some dependencies. Then I end up installing a bunch of packages relating to the gstreamer library until things magically start working.

So: does anyone know exactly which packages need to be installed to meet the dependencies of the Video library on Ubuntu? I am trying to avoid installing any packages in excess. I would like to install just what I need and nothing more, hence my question.

Thank you in advance to anyone who can help.
