How to create an rtsp sink with deepstream python program?

I was currently running a depstream-app -c with the rtsp camera, and streaming it with the VLC Media Player at the other computer, and it work as well. the program shown the link to stream “rtsp://localhost:8554/ds-tes”

I was curiously about this link and i search it, then found this from “deepstream_sink_bin.c” at “deepstream_sdk_v4.0.2_jetson\sources\apps\apps-common\src”
“DeepStream: Launched RTSP Streaming at rtsp://localhost:%d/ds-tes”

How to use that code in deepstream python ?

Because, i want to running a deepstream python program “deepstream-test3.py” with RTSP camera, and i want to stream it at the other computer, but i get some problem here.

  1. How to create an rtsp sink with deepstream python program?
  2. And how to streaming it at the other computer as well as deepstream-app program ?

Thank you before.

This is my edited-program from “deepstream-test3.py”

Hi,
We will evaluate to add sample for using rtspsink in python. The current sample apps are alpha release. For full functionality, we would suggest run deepstream-app.

I can’t run the deepstream-app, because i need the to add the database from the python program.

Thank you for your respone

But i wanna ask to you, is there any chance to use this “deepstream_sink_bin.c” to deepstream python program ?

Thanks for the respone Mr. orcdnz, i’ve tried your code, and i get a new error :

Error: gst-resource-error-quark: Resource not found. (3): gstfilesrc.c(533): gst_file_src_start (): /GstPipeline:0/GstFileSrc:file-source:
No such file "rtsp://admin:admin123@10.66.147.50"

You may wish to change that. Even though the IP is private, so are my uncle’s cameras, who I have similarly warned, and anyone can still access his cameras any time they choose since his remote management sofware also has a weak password. Please be aware that default usernames and passwords for IP cameras (and routers, and pretty much anything) are widely documented and services like shodan can be used to find open rtsp ports all across the planet. Yes, people will watch you, your kids, and your pets, if they are bored enough, and someone, somewhere, is absolutely bored.

note to forum admin: looks like something is wrong with youtube links in url tags.

As to the error itself, it looks like you are trying to pass your uri into script’s file source parameter. The way the script is written, it takes a file source in and broadcasts it out via rtsp on a url it will print for you. If you want to analyze an rtsp stream, the pipeline will have to be written differently.

Thank you for your attention mr.mdegans
That rtsp camera is only for research, and it will change the ip and the password everytime when i use it,
Yeah, before i used a new code, i’ve tried the code with the file-source for the “deepstream_test_3.py” with uri .mp4 and rtsp stream. But now, with the new code i got an error like that.
In this new code, when i tried to use uri .mp4, it still got an error :

No such file ".mp4 file"

Are you trying to create an rtsp server, or analyze an rtsp stream? It looks like the file you specified does not exist. Usage for that script should be

“usage: python3 deepstream_test_3.py [uri2] … [uriN]”

So basically if you have 2 cameras, it should be:

python3 deepstream_test_3.py rtsp://camera1:1234/some_path.ext rtsp://camera2:1234/some_path.ext

…to watch them both. The sink for deepstream_test_3.py is the screen. The example above is different and makes a server for you to watch on another machine.

print("\n *** DeepStream: Launched RTSP Streaming at rtsp://localhost:%d/ds-test ***\n\n" % rtsp_port_num)

Thank you mr.mdegans
Yes you’re right, i want to stream it via VLC media or another streamer application.
I’ve tried before i add the new code such this :

python3 deepstream_test_3.py rtsp://username:pass@ipcamera

It work succesfull without any error
But when i tried this new code from mr brian and mr orcdnz and I got an error like i mentioned above.

And again, see the first post again before answering my question Mr. mdegans

Apologies. It seems what you are asking for doesn’t exactly exist currently, however you should be able to combine BrianBarran’s example and deepstream_test_3 to do what you want.

Hi,
BrianBarran’s example is based on deepstream-test1. Please refer to it and apply the sink-related code to deepstream-test3.

I got a new error Hahahaha, sorry

I’ve tried combining the code from BrianBarran which is for deepstream_test_1.py and convert it to deepstream_test_3.py

Looks like your pipeline is missing some elements at least. (nvvidconv_postosd, caps, encoder, rtppay). If you link the nvosd directly to a udpsink it’s not going to work (it’ll try, because udpsink’s sink pad accepts ANY, but it won’t actually send video you can decode). You need to encode the video first and package it right to be sent across the network.

This works for me, but you’ll need to remove the “mce” references to back the way they were before, since i used some helpers i wrote to find “pyds”, handle the bus, buffers, etc. Just copy main() to yours, put the pie-config filename back the way it was (in place of ensure_config), and it should work. You may wish to remove the print statements from the osd buffer callback since you won’t be able to easily copy the rtsp url it creates otherwise.

Edit: and here is a good, known working, public rtsp stream I have been testing with. It’s potato quality, but good enough that cars are recognized when they pass by (Thanks. DaneLLL for finding that for me):

rtsp://freja.hiof.no:1935/rtplive/definst/hessdalen02.stream

This is from gst-play on my Ubuntu desktop, pointed at the url created by the above example on my tegra device. As you can see, the OSD stuff is there, and when cars pass by, the “vehicle” bounding box flickers.

Dear Mr. mdegans,

Thank you so much for your share code, the program can streamed to VLC media, but the screen on the jetson doesn’t show, is it caused by nvdsosd or the other thing maybe ?

So, in gstreamer, a pipeline flows from one or more sources to one or more sinks. In this case, the pipeline is linear, with one source, and one sink. All I did was swap out a display sink with the rtsp sink elements provided in Nvidia’s example.

If you want to send video to multiple sinks (a display, and the network), You will have to add and link a tee element just before the encoder to split the pipeline into two branches, add two queues and link the queues to the tee by requesting pads from the tee and linking them to the sink pads of the two queues you created. You can’t just go tee.link(queue) because the pads don’t exist on tees until you request them. Then you can link() one queue to the encoder ,then the rest of the rtsp elements as exists currently… and the other queue directly to a sink like nvoverlaysink. I am not sure if any of Nvidia’s python examples use a tee like this, but you can search the sources for “tee” and see if there is an existing example.

Try it out, and if you run into issues, post your code here.

Thank you mr. mdegans for your answer,

I got a new error here.
