Missing omxh264enc on ubuntu 18.04 after installation

I’m trying to get a h264 stream decode by gstreamer on ubuntu 18.04 but i missing the omxh264dec plugin. I have installed all the gstreamer packages.

gst-launch-1.0  udpsrc uri=udp:// ! typefind ! tsdemux ! multiqueue ! h264parse ! omxh264dec ! autovideosink
WARNING: erroneous pipeline: no element "omxh264dec"

Install the driver

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-drivers-common
sudo ubuntu-drivers autoinstall
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras

Install gstreamer

sudo add-apt-repository universe
sudo add-apt-repository multiverse
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gstreamer1.0-tools gstreamer1.0-alsa gstreamer1.0-plugins-base gstreamer1.0-plugins-good gstreamer1.0-plugins-bad gstreamer1.0-plugins-ugly gstreamer1.0-libav
sudo apt-get install libgstreamer1.0-dev libgstreamer-plugins-base1.0-dev libgstreamer-plugins-good1.0-dev libgstreamer-plugins-bad1.0-dev

Looking for the omx plugins

gst-inspect-1.0 | grep omx
libav:  avenc_h264_omx: libav OpenMAX IL H.264 video encoder encoder

If you want gst-omx, you’ll have to install the packages

I do not get gst-omx installed. I have installed the related packages but this makes no difference.

$ sudo apt-get install gst-omx

My goal is to do the h264 encoding on the Quadro M2000.

Ok, wrong system. AFAIK, omx with nvidia is only provided for their ARM based chips. With x86 desktop boards you’ll have to use either vdpau or nvenc.

I have installed the vdapau driver and the gstreamer vaapi, but I can’t find any vaapi plugin.

sudo apt-get install gstreamer1.0-vaapi
sudo apt-get install vdpau-va-driver vainfo
$ DISPLAY=:0 vainfo 
libva info: VA-API version 1.1.0
libva info: va_getDriverName() returns 0

      VAProfileVC1Advanced            :	VAEntrypointVLD
$ gst-inspect-1.0 | grep vaa

This has no results.

How do I use/install the vdpau or nvdec in gstreamer?
