How to know program is using hardware encoder

Hi all,

I tried to use gstreamer to record video from camera stream. The CPU usage is super high comparing to using command to record video. I am thinking maybe the hardware encoder is not used

How can I know whether the hardware encoder is used?

Thanks in advance

You can run sudo tegrastats and check whether NVENC shows up. We have enabled hardware acceleration in gstreamer and jetson_multimedia_api. And there is a package for ffmpeg. For more information, please take a look at developer guide
