Help,dump image from nvv4l2decoder problem

Hi Guys,

My device is Jetson NX, and deepstream 5.0;

I‘m trying to dump the h264 decoded data from nvv4l2decoder element。
I add a probe to the src of nvv4l2decoder,my code is like this:

After run the code, i got the output:
batch:1 numfilled:1 memtype:4 surfacearrary:4
size is : 3538944 w:1920 h:1080 pitch:1920 format:6 nv12is:6 layout:1
numer plans:2
plan: h: 1080 w:1920 bytes:1 pitch:1920 offset: 0 psize:2228224
plan: h: 540 w:960 bytes:2 pitch:1920 offset: 2228224 psize:1310720

The width, height, pitch is right, the memtype is surfacearrary, frame_format is NV12,but the image i saved is wrong, i don’t know why. And I have already set “enable-full-frame” true.
Please give me some help, thanks.

Before you dump data from NvBufSurface, you need to check memType, format and layout first. Different memType, format and layout, the dump method is different. DeepStream SDK FAQ - Intelligent Video Analytics / DeepStream SDK - NVIDIA Developer Forums

Thanks, i will make a try.
AS my code above, memtype is NVBUF_MEM_SURFACE_ARRAY, FrameForamt is NVBUF_COLOR_FORMAT_NV12,Layout is NVBUF_LAYOUT_BLOCK_LINEAR, what’s the meaning of NVBUF_LAYOUT_BLOCK_LINEAR?

What is the difference between NvBufferLayout_Pitch NvBufferLayout_BlockLinear in nvbuf_utils.h? - Jetson & Embedded Systems / Jetson AGX Xavier - NVIDIA Developer Forums

Hi fiona,may i ask a question,
“printf(" layout = %d\n", sur->layout);”
what’s the output value in your patch,NVBUF_LAYOUT_BLOCK_LINEAR or NVBUF_LAYOUT_BLOCK_PITCH

There is no update from you for a period, assuming this is not an issue any more.
Hence we are closing this topic. If need further support, please open a new one.

Sorry for late response. With Jetson platform, the deepstream video decoder output block linear layout data.
Is the patch work for your case?
