Gstreamer pipeline creation help


I am trying to playback a video file from a gstreamer RTSP server to a client.

Here is my gstreamer pipeline to test playing the video file over VLC:

./test_launch “filesrc ! decodebin ! rtpmp4vpay name=pay0 pt=96”

When I try to connect to the server from VLC, the connection is made but video doesn’t load. is a quicktime video which I think uses mpeg-4 format.

Also if anyone has helpful resources to create gstreamer pipelines, please post link.

Thank you.

One solution I found is to use a demuxer and turn the video into a raw video stream then parse the raw video stream, this seems to work.

It may be h264 in mov files. You may install ffmpeg and run

$ ffprobe -i

If it is h264, please run like:

./test_launch "filesrc ! qtdemux ! h264parse ! rtph264pay name=pay0 pt=96"


Thank you, this is exactly what I tried and it works. I think you’re right and it is h264.
