GStreamer vs OpenCV: What are the differences?

GStreamer: Open source multimedia framework. GStreamer is a library for constructing graphs of media-handling components. The applications it supports range from simple Ogg/Vorbis playback, audio/video streaming to complex audio (mixing) and video (non-linear editing) processing; OpenCV: Open Source Computer Vision Library. OpenCV was designed for computational efficiency and with a strong focus on real-time applications. Written in optimized C/C++, the library can take advantage of multi-core processing. Enabled with OpenCL, it can take advantage of the hardware acceleration of the underlying heterogeneous compute platform.

GStreamer and OpenCV can be categorized as "Image Processing and Management" tools.

Some of the features offered by GStreamer are:

  • Multiplatform
  • Comprehensive Core Library
  • Intelligent Plugin Architecture

On the other hand, OpenCV provides the following key features:

  • C++, C, Python and Java interfaces and supports Windows, Linux, Mac OS, iOS and Android
  • More than 47 thousand people of user community and estimated number of downloads exceeding 7 million
  • Usage ranges from interactive art, to mines inspection, stitching maps on the web or through advanced robotics

OpenCV is an open source tool with 37.1K GitHub stars and 27.4K GitHub forks. Here's a link to OpenCV's open source repository on GitHub.

What are some alternatives to GStreamer and OpenCV?
FFMPEG
The universal multimedia toolkit.
WebRTC
It is a free, open project that enables web browsers with Real-Time Communications (RTC) capabilities via simple JavaScript APIs. The WebRTC components have been optimized to best serve this purpose.
Cloudinary
Cloudinary is a cloud-based service that streamlines websites and mobile applications' entire image and video management needs - uploads, storage, administration, manipulations, and delivery.
imgix
imgix is a real-time image processing service and CDN. Resize, crop, and edit images simply by changing their URLs.
Amazon Elastic Transcoder
Convert or transcode media files from their source format into versions that will playback on devices like smartphones, tablets and PCs. Create a transcoding “job” specifying the location of your source media file and how you want it transcoded. Amazon Elastic Transcoder also provides transcoding presets for popular output formats. All these features are available via service API, AWS SDKs and the AWS Management Console.
