H.264 decoder (nvdec) is crashing

Hello,

I have created an Azure virtual machine Nc6s_v3 which provide Nvidia V100 GPU card. I have set up the drivers following the instructions here https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/linux/n-series-driver-setup.

The driver is set up successfully and I am able to see proper output for ‘nvidia-smi’ tool.

I have successfully compiled Video_Codec_SDK_9.0.20 and able to run the sample applications.

I compiled the Gstreamer codebase by enabling Nvidia hw encoder/decode support. The encoder plugin nvh264enc is working fine. But I am seeing a crash with the decoder plugin (nvdec) with the following stack trace.

nvdec error:

Any help here will be greatly appreciated
