How can I construct a gstreamer pipe for my V4L2 camera?

• Hardware Platform (Jetson / GPU) : Nuvo IPC / RTX2080
• DeepStream Version : N/A
• JetPack Version (valid for Jetson only) : N/A
• TensorRT Version : N/A
• NVIDIA GPU Driver Version (valid for GPU only) : 460.91.03
• Issue Type( questions, new requirements, bugs) : questions
• How to reproduce the issue ? (This is for bugs. Including which sample app is using, the configuration files content, the command line used and other details for reproducing)
• Requirement details( This is for new requirement. Including the module name-for which plugin or for which sample application, the function description)

I’d like to use gstreamer to capture video images(RGB/BGR), frames(RGB/BGR) from my V4L2 camera.
The output of v4l2-ctl is shown below:

$ vl42ctl -d /dev/video0 --all

But I have no idea how to make the pipe string that should go to the gst-launch-1.0
Could you suggest me a good gstreamer pipe string for my camera?

I’d like to use as much H/W accellerations as possible that the Nvidia RTX2080 provides.
The source would be the camera above.
The sink should be the appsink. But with the gst-launch-1.0 the sink can be fakesink. (ex. gst-launch-1.0 nvv4l2camerasrc device=/dev/video0 ! ‘video/x-raw(memory:NVMM),format=UYVY,width=3840,height=2160,framerate=30/1’ ! nvvidconv ! video/x-raw,format=BGRx ! videoconvert ! video/x-raw, format=BGR ! fakesink -v)
The application that receives data from the appsink must receive RGB or BGR data and upon this data opencv will be used and applied to process many vision algorithm.

Thank you!

You can try to replace the nvvidconv and videoconvert plug-ins with nvvideoconvert plugin.
