Issue with http stream on NX-Xavier whille using deepstream-imagedata-multistream sample application

Hi Team,

I am using deepstream 6.1 on two different machine and there I am running deepstream-imagedata-multi-stream sample application with http stream.

Problem:
I am able to run http stream inside DS6.1 with deepstream-imagedata-multi-stream test app on dGPU (2080TI) system but when I am running the same http stream on Nx-Xavier I am getting issue mentioned below.

**PERF:  {'stream0': 0.0} 

Decodebin child added: decodebin0 

Decodebin child added: queue2-0 

Decodebin child added: multipartdemux0 

Decodebin child added: multiqueue0 

Decodebin child added: nvjpegdec0 


**PERF:  {'stream0': 0.0} 

In cb_newpad

Error: gst-stream-error-quark: Internal data stream error. (1): gstbasesrc.c(3072): gst_base_src_loop (): /GstPipeline:pipeline0/GstBin:source-bin-00/GstURIDecodeBin:uri-decode-bin/GstSoupHTTPSrc:source:
streaming stopped, reason not-negotiated (-4)
Exiting app

Please suggest what should I change in sample application so that it can run on NX-Xavier too with http stream (code working fine with rtsp only problem with http stream.).

sample application code:

Please help me out.

Could you try to set compute-hw=1 paras to the nvvideoconvert plugin and see if it works? Thanks

Hi @yuweiw,

I tried with nvvidconv.set_property(“compute-hw”, 1) but issue is still same.
What else I can try?

Thanks.

Could you add GST_DEBUG=3 to open more log when you run our demo app?Like GST_DEBUG=3 ./deepstream-imagedata-multi-stream .............

Hi @yuweiw

I have run the sample with sudo GST_DEBUG=3 python3 deepstream_imagedata-multistream.py “http://admin:admin123@192.168.0.200:80/cgi-bin/mjpg/video.cgi?channel=1&subtype=1” ./frames but unable to understand the logs.

can you please suggest what should I add in sample application.
