  1. I’m going to use new plugins in v5.1: gst-nvdsvideotemplate, but it missing in deepstream_sdk_v5.1.0_jetson.tbz2

I also download x86_64 version and found this new plugins.

  1. I copy sources from x86_64 /opt/nvidia/deepstream/deepstream-5.1/sources/gst-plugins/gst-nvdsvideotemplate
    to Jetson /opt/... and successfully compile gst-nvdsvideotemplate plugin.

  2. But when I try to repeat demo-usage from gst-nvdsvideotemplate README it fails with the following error:

gst-launch-1.0 filesrc location=~/sample_720p.mp4 ! decodebin ! nvvidconv ! nvdsvideotemplate customlib-name="./" customlib-props="scale-factor:2" ! identity silent=1 ! nveglglessink

WARNING: erroneous pipeline: could not link identity0 to eglglessink0

If I remove identity, it fails too:

WARNING: erroneous pipeline: could not link nvdsvideotemplate0 to eglglessink0

Current DS5.1 does not support gst-nvdsvideotemplate on Jetson. It will be available in next version. Gst-nvdsvideotemplate — DeepStream 5.1 Release documentation

I don’t understand.

But current version is 5.1?

Yes. Current version is DS5.1. gst-nvdsvideotemplate only works on dGPU in this version(you will see the platform is “dGPU” in the link).
