Jetson-inference input RTSP over UDP

Hi! I have the same problem as here. But instead of rtsp-simple-server my noname camera from china supports rtsp and encodes video in h265 format, works fine with this command (don’t work with h265 decoding):

gst-launch-1.0 rtspsrc location=rtsp://admin:1234@ latency=200 ! queue ! rtph264depay ! h264parse ! omxh264dec ! 'video/x-raw(memory:NVMM)' ! nvoverlaysink

ffplay over TCP works fine, over UDP does not work, so I conclude that my camera cannot work with UDP. In jetson-inference “RTSP network streams are subscribed to from a remote host over UDP/IP.” so I can’t use my camera that doesn’t work over UDP / IP for some reason. Please tell me have I any options to use jetson-inference and connect it to the camera via TCP? If i need to rewrite part of jetson-inference please indicate where to start.

Hi @farhatyakubov, you can edit the RTSP pipeline created by jetson-inference/jetson-utils here in the code:

I’m not exactly sure, but I think you may want to try adding protocols=tcp to the rtspsrc element. Does this pipeline work for you?

gst-launch-1.0 rtspsrc location=rtsp://admin:1234@ latency=200 protocols=tcp ! queue ! rtph264depay ! h264parse ! omxh264dec ! 'video/x-raw(memory:NVMM)' ! nvoverlaysink

BTW I found out about this setting using the gst-inspect tool:

$ gst-inspect-1.0 rtspsrc
 protocols           : Allowed lower transport protocols
                        flags: readable, writable
                        Flags "GstRTSPLowerTrans" Default: 0x00000007, "tcp+udp-mcast+udp"
                           (0x00000000): unknown          - GST_RTSP_LOWER_TRANS_UNKNOWN
                           (0x00000001): udp              - GST_RTSP_LOWER_TRANS_UDP
                           (0x00000002): udp-mcast        - GST_RTSP_LOWER_TRANS_UDP_MCAST
                           (0x00000004): tcp              - GST_RTSP_LOWER_TRANS_TCP
                           (0x00000010): http             - GST_RTSP_LOWER_TRANS_HTTP
                           (0x00000020): tls              - GST_RTSP_LOWER_TRANS_TLS

Also, if you change the C++ code in jetson-inference/jetson-utils, re-run the following:

$ cd /path/to/your/jetson-inference/build
$ cmake ../
$ make
$ sudo make install
