IMX708 video recording error

Hi all,

I attempted to record a video from the IMX708 sensor (Raspberry Pi v3 camera) using Jetson Nano (not the orin Nano). I have successfully captured images from the sensor using the drivers from RidgeRun.

However, I am encountering an error when trying to record a video, and I’m unable to find a solution. The error message is as follows:
_ValidateEncodeParams: Invalid encode width

I tried a very basic example pipeline form RidgeRun, so I don’t think the pipeline itself is the issue. I’m seeking advice on how to resolve this problem. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.


SENSOR_ID=0 # 0 for CAM0 port
FRAMERATE=14 # Framerate can go from 2 to 14 for 4608x2592 mode
gst-launch-1.0 -e nvarguscamerasrc sensor-id=$SENSOR_ID ! "video/x-raw(memory:NVMM),width=4608,height=2592,framerate=$FRAMERATE/1" ! nvv4l2h264enc ! h264parse ! mp4mux ! filesink location=rpi_v3_imx708_cam$SENSOR_ID.mp4

Can you try adding format to the camera caps and changing the encode

gst-launch-1.0 -e nvarguscamerasrc sensor_id=$SENSOR_ID ! 'video/x-raw(memory:NVMM),width=4608,height=2592,framerate=$FRAMERATE/1, format=NV12' ! nvvidconv ! "video/x-raw,width=1920,height=1080" ! x264enc ! qtmux ! filesink location=RidgeRun_out.mp4

if this doesn’t work, please try

gst-launch-1.0 nvarguscamerasrc sensor_id=$SENSOR_ID -e ! 'video/x-raw(memory:NVMM),width=4608,height=2592,framerate=$FRAMERATE/1, format=NV12' ! fakesink

Hi ManuelLeiva.

The first pipeline perfectly worked!
But now I encountered another issue I cannot record the video while displaying the video stream.

I will open another topic.
Thank you for your help.
