#11 macinstall file

hansi raber


i have some comments on the macinstall file that comes with gsvideo:

- right now it needs to be started from terminal, when just double clicking it the gsProcessing file will be created in the wrong folder and also it's contents won't reflect the correct paths
- there seems to be some naming problems with the dylibs.

i attached you my customized macinstall script.
for fixing first problem i just used $(dirname $0) instead of $(pwd)
for fixing the second i had to go through a long list of missing libraries and set the symlinks accordingly. maybe this is just my system or maybe there's a better way to do it, but this definitely works well so far :)

    p.s. i've just taken a brief look into the GSVideo class.
    is it possible that the problem i have with the dylibs (e.g. gstreamer-0.10 will be requested, but in the file system it's gstreamer-0.10.0) occurs because the mac version isn't using the library loader?

    Hey thanks! I'll add your changes into the next release of gsvideo.

    Regarding your comment, you are right: gsvideo doesn't use the library loader in mac because the only way I found so far to properly resolve the gstreamer dependencies is by setting the environmental variables DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH and GST_PLUGIN_PATH.
