Install gstreamer-plugins-bad without kitchen sink

Hi, is there any possibility to install gstreamer1.0-plugins-bad without also drawing in a myriad other packages (even with --no-install-recommends): from adwaita-icon-theme to wayland libraries. Thanks!

Did you manage to install gstreamer libraries to DietPi? I am trying to use processing video with gstreamer libraries on DietPi

One can install them via APT:

apt install gstreamer1.0-alsa

As a start.

Indeed the “bad” plugins pull a large number of dependencies:
So to skip this, one would need to compile them manually, but I guess then not all plugins will work fully featured.
