How to directly output video to physical HDMI device without disabling GNOME

• Hardware Platform (Jetson / GPU) Jetson
• DeepStream Version 6.1
• JetPack Version (valid for Jetson only) 4.5
• Issue Type( questions, new requirements, bugs) questions


I’m creating Gstreamer pipeline which generate video for digital signage. And I’d like to use Jetson’s HDMI port for video streaming.

I found some posts saying nvdrmvideosink is for that purpose, but I wonder is it possible to use nvdrmvideosink with active GNOME envrionment?

Jetson Xavier NX has both DisplayPort and HDMI port. So, can i use HDMI for nvdrmvideosink and DisplayPort for GNOME environment?

I need Desktop environment along with Gstreamer output in order to control Gstreamer pipeline.

Best regards

There is no update from you for a period, assuming this is not an issue anymore.

nvdrmvideosink is DRM driver based. You can not use it with GDM. Accelerated GStreamer — Jetson Linux Developer Guide documentation (

Maybe you can consider nveglglessink or nv3dsink which are all window based sink.
