Deepstream 6.2version seems not produce idr periodically

Please provide complete information as applicable to your setup.

**• Hardware Platform (Jetson / GPU)**GPU
• DeepStream Version 6.2

gst-launch-1.0 videotestsrc ! nvvideoconvert ! nvv4l2h264enc iframeinterval=25  force-intra=true ! filesink location=test.h264

using this cmd to record a video. turns out a h264 file with only one idr frame at first. It’s work for video if we only want to record. But using this stream on live is not acceptable. I have tested it on 6.0 version which will produce idr periodically so can be played on live. Is therer any way to force-idr generate on dGPU deepstream 6.2 ?


Can you try to force the idrinterval using the following pipeline?

gst-launch-1.0 videotestsrc ! nvvideoconvert ! nvv4l2h264enc idrinterval=25  force-intra=true ! filesink location=test.h264


there is no idrinterval property on nvv4l2h264enc when it’s on dGPU T4 card or A10 card

It’s only works on jetson platform

The “idrinterval” property is not supported in DeepStream 6.2 GA for dGPU, we will add it in the future release.

Hello. I’m wondering it’s right behavior that encoder only generate one IDR frame at beginning on deepstream 6.2 GA, dGPU?

It is inconvenient. Before the solution is available, at least “iframeinterval” can be used to generate I frames periodically.

I am wodering why it’s can generate IDR periodically on version 6.0,but abandoned on 6.2

It is a bug. We will fix in the future release.
