I am trying to use gst-rtsp-server in my python application. for this I included the following : 

      import gi 
     from gi.repository import GstRtspServer 


However, I get the following error: 
  File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/gi/", line 130, in require_version 
    raise ValueError('Namespace %s not available' % namespace) 
    ValueError: Namespace GstRtspServer not available 


1. Later I tried installing rtsp-server from source from the following repo 


2. Compiling this gave me an error saying 'Gst-Rtsp.gir' files are missing 
from '/usr/share/gir-1.0'. To resolve this I copied the required '*.gir'  files to  '/usr/share/gir-1.0' from repo :


3. make and make install was success. 


4. However, when importing this GstRtspServer in my application, I still have the issue : 
    ValueError: Namespace GstRtspServer not available 


5. I have seen a number of posts on this issue, and also tried different solutions suggested, however this still is not resolved. 


I am using Gstreamer 1.14.1

Does anyone have any pointers towards this issue ?
