GStreamer, a popular open source multimedia framework, is often used on embedded devices with limited storage capacity. In this talk, we'll discover how to use the Meson build system to shrink its binary size as much as possible, so it fits on small embedded devices like a smart watch. This presentation will give a basic introduction to Meson, GStreamer's build system, and look at how GStreamer's plugin system works. We'll also discuss how to make a fully static build of GStreamer and its dependencies, and give some extra tricks to save even more bytes.
