Phonon Dependencies

As described in the Phonon Overview, Phonon uses the GStreamer multimedia framework as the backend for audio and video playback on X11. The minimum required version of GStreamer is 0.10.

To build Phonon, you need the GStreamer library, base plugins, and development files for your system. The package names for GStreamer vary between Linux distributions; try searching for gstreamer or libgstreamer in your distribution's package repository to find suitable packages.
