I wanted to introduce you into the next station in my Mandelbrot world domination tour. Using C and GLSL this Mandelbrot set visualization can be rendered to a video file.

$ gst-launch-1.0 gltestsrc pattern=13 ! video/x-raw, width=1920, height=1080 ! glimagesink

To run this command you need the patches for gst-plugins-bad I proposed upstream. After they get merged you can try this in your distribution’s GStreamer version.

This is the short patch required for the Mandelbrot set, made possible with the patch adding a generic shader pipeline for gltestsrc patterns.
